    Library Setup


    I keep all my movies music and pictures on a separate drive. In Windows 7 it simple to add these files to there corresponding library's but I cannot figure out how to do this with Windows 10. I am sure it is simple and I am just over looking something. Thanks in advance.

    I am still missing something. In windows 7 you can add folders that are stored on other drives to the corresponding library .

    Hello Kelly,

    The tutorial below can help show you how to add a folder to a library. The tutorial is for Windows 8, but is the same in Windows 10.

    First, can you see your Libraries?

    The easiest is to go to the Properties of the library and add your folders there. You can also remove them there.

    Thanks for all the replies. This was really easy in Windows 7 not sure why it keeps stumping me in Windows 10.

    Thanks again, Kelly

    It's easy in Win10 too, but different.
    In Win8 and after, MS removed the library bar at the top of Libraries - now you have to do everything in properties (right click the Library)
