    I'm still trying to understand what people don't understand about Libraries in W-7.

    Libraries don't make one do anything.
    Libraries do give one a easy way to do many things.

    Libraries are great for dummies like me. I can arrange and move things the way I want them. Then find them latter when needed.
    The key to me is I can find things. I don't always remember what I did with what.

    Kari and I are surly not the only two people in the world that like the Library system in W-7.

    just choose "save as" ,and one cant choose where ever they want to put the file .
    windows is only trying to help basic users when it choose to keep them categorised .make sense to me

    Problem is that when extended support is over, you have to move on up. I like Win8, but if you want to stay with 7, you can only do so until January 2020.

    I'm sorry but that's about.. 5-6 years. Not coming that soon me thinks.

    Libraries....??? Chuck 'em in the toilette. I don't need ms telling me where to save stuff. Seriously, I am completely capable of deciding where I want to put stuff. Doy...
    As is so often the case when reading these "I don't need it" posts, also in this case your post clearly shows that you have not the faintest idea of what Windows libraries are and how they work, that you simply do not understand them.

    Of course I know that not everyone is capable to understand some even the most basic features of Windows. I will try to put this as simple as possible in order to try to get even you to understand: Windows Libraries do not decide where the files are saved, the user does. Libraries just collect the information and show everything in one place.

    Kari
    Another one, figuring that anyone who doesn't like what ms deems a "feature" then they must be too dumb to figure out how to use them.

    Of course, they generally can't explain how we managed to got along so freakin' well before appeared. Makes ya wonder...

    Libraries are for people who haven't the faintest idea how to do their own organizing, in their own way.

    But that ain't me, babe. I just don't need no superfluous nonsense.

    I like a nice tidy file manager. I like to see only the folders I want to see, not what someone else thinks I should see. All libraries do is add stuff I'm never gonna want to see. I know where my stuff is, always.(almost)

    I mean, what the hell are you doing if you don't already always know where your stuff is...???

    And note that I have 13TB of hd space. I just don't see the freakin issue.

    I also don't see why anyone should feel put out because I don't like libraries.

    No I get that, but the same thing was said to XP users, and that day has now passed. They still have those types of concerns.

    You do not save your files in Libraries, nor does Windows "decide" for you to save anything in them. In fact, it's totally impossible: Libraries in Windows are not physical storage locations​, they are not folders. Files are, with or without Libraries, saved where the user wants them to be saved.

    An example about how to use libraries from this laptop I am using at the moment:

    I have an external USB3 3TB drive H: named Videos. Originally only that drive was included in in my Videos library. As the number of movies stored on that drive became greater and greater, I reserved it for DVD / BD rips and movies I want to save alone, moving other video folders to other drives. One by one I have added more drives and / or folders to Videos library.

    Let's say I want to cast some movies, series or other videos to Chromecast using this excellent Chrome extension Videostream, best tool I have found to cast local content (and free!). I click Choose a Video and the Video library content is shown in Open dialog. I do not have to select different drives to select what I want to watch, the Videos library does that for me. In screenshot below the yellow highlight shows folders from external drive H:, the green folders from external drive X:, the red folders from external drive Z: and the blue one folder I have included in Videos library from my user profiles internal drive E:. Video content from 4 different drives in one Open dialog:

    When I save video files, I do not save them in Videos library. I save them in folders which I decide and select by myself. As mentioned, saving in library is impossible because it is not a physical storage location. It is just a container for content I want that container to show.

    Sort of true.. but MS gave longer support to Xp than is required for other companies to provide, car.
