Duplicate Library Folder

  1. #11


    Okayyy sooo:
    Somehow one of the Music libraries which I copied to paste into the libraries folder came back from the dead and restored itself to my desktop? o_0

    Also, this is what my library folder looks like now:





    EDIT: There are now only 2 of the transluscent-ish folders. What are they?

    Odd, the two transluscent folders turned into Pictures and Libraries (which I deleted since for some reason IconPackager didn't change their icons)

    Which location is that?

    %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Libraries

    I deleted the Pictures library and made a new one called Pics so I could use a custom icon, and deleted Videos because I never use videos.

    Yup, but they're just not recognized as default

    That's great news.

    The only other way I know to fix this good and proper is to refresh Windows 8.

    The double music folders popped reappear every now and then and I have to manually delete them. :/ Know why?

    Most likely something is either saving into it or trying to open it.

    To stop this, I'd recommend refreshing Windows 8.

    Would I lose all of my programs?

    Yes. Any 3rd party installed programs will need to be reinstalled afterwards.

    The blue NOTE box at the top of the tutorial can give you more details on what is affected.

    Refresh Windows 8
