Can't add custom folders to "This PC"???

    Can't add custom folders to "This PC"???

    Hi all, I know customization of 8.1 "This PC" has been addressed, but it all seems to be about how to REMOVE folders from the explorer/navigation panes.
    I know it sounds odd, but I love "Libraries" and have made several custom Library folders.
    Now with 8.1 it's all about old school folders appearing in the main pane of "This PC," and I'd like to have my Library folders (or the actual folders that are part of each Library) appear in the main pane.
    All those tweaking tools only let you put "Library" in there, but not the individual Libraries.

    Thanks for any tips,

    Hello Menilman, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    This is not in "This PC", but If you like, you could add Libraries to the navigation pane that will show all of your libraries in the main window.

    Hope this may help,

    Hi Shawn, thanks, yes I'm hip to adding them there, which I've already done.
    But I'd really like to put those folders in the This PC window of file explorer, which so far doesn't seem possible....
    But thanks for the quick reply!
