How to Return Libraries to Windows 8.1’s File Explorer

Windows 8.1 introduced a lot of changes to its predecessor. Most of those changes served to make the operating system more accessible and easier to use – most, but not all. Windows 8.1 removes libraries, the easily accessible File Explorer locations that aggregate your documents, music, videos and so on into a single place. These libraries are useful and removing them was an odd choice.

If you miss this feature, try not to worry too much. You can return libraries to Windows 8.1 with a small settings tweak. As explained by PCWorld’s Rick Broida, all you have to do is launch the File Explorer, select the View tab, click “Navigation Pane” and then click “Show libraries.” That’s all there is to it. You’ll now find them in the left pane of the File Explorer window.

If you know of others who wonder where their libraries have gone, make sure to share this with them.
