    New Library


    Hello,
    I am trying to establish a New Library for Win 10 info and shortcuts.
    I successively create Library, I open it and get dialogue "include folder"
    I create and include a new folder.My problem is if I then delete folder from original position, it also deletes from New Library. This apparently means I can never delete original folder and so will always have two copies of the new folder. Is there a workround to overcome this?
    I can "move" the new folder to an existing Library(Docs, music, etc) without any problem.Maybe I am doing something wrong,any help appreciated
    Thanx

    Hello Rayal,

    A folder that you include in a library is only linked to the library so you can also access the folder through the library. The library is not the actual location of the folder. The folder is still at its original location.
