    How to show Libraries Under (or above) This PC in explorer


    Windows 8.1 shows folders above This PC in Windows 8.1.

    Using the reg file provided in this forum, I removed all folders from showing above This PC and I selected show libraries in the navigation. Now, at the left; there are Favorites, This PC, and Libraries.

    What I want is to be able to see This PC and Libraries under the same menu. Under (if not possible, above) This PC so I can see both my libraries and disks at the same time.

    The reason I need this is that my user folders are not (all) my libraries.

    Thanks.



    P.S.: Simply, I want to see my Libraries instead of Folders in Explorer.
