Windows 10: When I use "Save As", my Libraries folder is missing Solved

  1.    14 Aug 2017 #1

    When I use "Save As", my Libraries folder is missing


    .
    When I save a file using "Save As", the list of folders does not show the "Libraries" folder (or any of its subfolders, such as Documents, Music...)

    When I open File Explorer, I can see the following top-level folders:
    • Libraries
    • OneDrive
    • This PC
    • Network


    But when I use "Save As" to save a file, the "Libraries" folder is missing. I need to use:
    This PC > MyData (E) > Documents

    (All my data is on the "E" drive, using standard Windows tools.)

    I would be grateful for advice on how to restore my "Libraries" folder to the topmost position in the folder list.


    Thanks.

    Hello OldGrantonian,

    Please go ahead and post a screenshot showing what you see in the "Save As" dialog to help determine what method to add Libraries may be best.

    For now, are you able to add Libraries using an option in the tutorial below?

    I was able to add Libraries using your method of right-click in empty space followed by "Show libraries". Thanks for that suggestion :)

    I have one follow-up question: How can I now move Libraries to the top of the left pane?

    Thanks.

    You're most welcome. :)

    You could use the method in the tutorial below to move Libraries above This PC to help.

    If you don't want OneDrive or Quick access in the navigation pane, you could remove them to then have Libraries on top.

    Thanks Brink. Your tutorial worked fine (as always) :)


    New subject: Congrats on your new tutorial spreadsheet. If I had known about it, I probably wouldn't have submitted my OP. I think your excellent tutorials are referenced by every other Windows forum on the planet :)
