How to Add Manage Library to Context Menu of Libraries in Windows 10

information   Information
Libraries gather folders that are stored in different locations so you can browse them in one place. You can include folders and drives to a library as you like, and set a default save location and public save location for the library.

You can add a Manage library context menu to libraries and library backgrounds that will let you quickly view or change the library's settings instead of doing so from the library's properties page.

This tutorial will show you how to add Manage library to the context menu of libraries for all users in Windows 10.

While you must be signed in as an administrator to add or remove the context menu, all users will be able to use the context menu.

Note   Note
When you right click or press and hold on a library (ex: Pictures) or background of a library and click/tap on Manage library, you will see the "Library Locations" to "Change how this library gathers its contents" window like below.
