Add or Remove Libraries from Navigation Pane in Windows 8 and 8.1
Synopsis
This tutorial will show you how to add or remove Libraries from the navigation pane of File Explorer for only your account or all users in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.
Add or Remove "Libraries" from Navigation Pane in Windows 8 and 8.1

information   Information
Libraries in Windows 8 and 8.1, like in Windows 7, allow you to access and organize files that are actually saved at different local and remote locations in the one library folder location.

For more information about Libraries in Windows 8, see:
This tutorial will show you how to add or remove Libraries from the navigation pane of File Explorer for only your account or all users in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.

Note   Note
When Libraries is removed from the navigation pane in Windows Explorer, it does not disable libraries. Users will still be able to manually navigate to, or create shortcuts pointing to, the Libraries folders location below to access a library.

The default pinned File Explorer (Windows Explorer) icon on the taskbar will still open to Libraries since it's target is the current user location below. This can be changed to open to another location instead by the user if they like though.

Tip   Tip
The default Libaries folders are at the hidden locations below.

For all users
C:\Users\Public\Libraries


For current user only
C:\Users\(user-name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Libraries

warning   Warning
If you add Libraries to the navigation pane, then the default File Explorer pinned on the taskbar will open to Libraries instead of the default This PC.

Is there a difference to the "good old Windows 7 method" with simple deleting this registry key:
Code:
HKLM\SOFWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{031E4825-7B94-4dc3-B131-E946B44C8DD5}
Because there you don’t need to "take ownership" and it makes no difference between 32-bit and 64-bit …

Hello Nifu,

Deleting the key in your post will have no affect on Libraries in the navigation pane. Plus, the method used in Windows 7 is the same as what's in this tutorial.

Personally, I prefer to set a value than just deleting a registry key like this outright. It's much easier to set a DWORD value back to undo it in the future, than trying to restore the entire registry key.

Hope this helps, :)
Shaw

Can not confirm. I delete the key and Libraries in the navigation pane are gone.

Personally, I prefer to set a value than just deleting a registry key like this outright. It's much easier to set a DWORD value back to undo it in the future, than trying to restore the entire registry key.
Can not confirm. For restoring a DWORD value I must remember what to change back. If I save the necessary changes into a text file or just export the key into a REG file before deleting is nearly the same effort. Plus the advantage not need to "take ownership" and do not need care for 32-bit or 64-bit …

You could also export the ShellFolder key for the same purpose.

It would be nice to not have to take ownership for only the first time, but I don't know what else to say except that deleting the key in your post just had no affect on Libraries in the navigation pane on any of my systems. Even after restarting the computer after deleting it.

OK - there you are right.

but I don't know what else to say except that deleting the key in your post just had no affect on Libraries in the navigation pane on any of my systems.
I see you have deleted the registry key. I don't know why it works on my systems. Perhaps I try an English installation to verify.

Even after restarting the computer after deleting it.
I even don't need to restart my computer - only reopen Explorer.

Can't change permissions to ShellFolder

Hi. I am new here, new laptop, HP g7, win8, 64 bit, and I cannot change the permissions for the ShellFolder, therefore cannot make the changes to the attributes. I have tried everything in this tutorial except dos. cmd. I am leery. i can't figure out what I am missing.

I am going to run through it one more time. I don't know what folder to take ownership of though. I tried what was described.

Hello DeckerDane, and welcome to Eight Forums.

You would need to take ownership of the ShellFolder key in the registry first before being able to set it's permissions. :)

I am stumped on this: 8. If you have 64-bit Windows 8 Installed

Note

If you have 64-bit Windows 8 installed, then you will need to do this step to also add or remove Libraries from the "Open" and "Save as" type dialog windows.

This step is not available or needed if you have 32-bit Windows 8 installed.

I don't know where those are, open and save as, I want to customize this.

Hello DeckerDane,

If you have 32-bit Windows 8 installed, then the tutorial on the first page will remove "Libraries" from that location without step 8. It's only if you had 64-bit Windows 8 installed that you would also need to do the additional step 8 to remove "Libraries" from that location.

If you only wanted to change the options in the places bar of the common open file dialog box in your screenshot to what you wanted instead, then you could use the tutorial below to do so.

Common File Dialog Box - Customize Places Bar - Windows 7 Forums
Hope this helps, :)
Shawn

Hello remostalin, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Are you signed in as an administrator?

If so, then double check to make sure that you did all of step 4 to both take ownership and set permissions of the registry key(s) before trying to modify them.

Hope this helps, :)
