Create a new library

You can use libraries to view and arrange files from different locations. There are four default libraries (Documents, Music, Pictures, and Videos), but you can also create new libraries for other collections.

For more information about libraries, see Libraries: frequently asked questions.

To create a new library

  1. Click the Start button Picture of the Start button, click your user name (which opens your personal folder), and then, in the left pane, click Libraries.
  2. In Libraries, on the toolbar, click New library.

  3. Type a name for the library, and then press Enter.

To copy, move, or save files to a library, you must first include a folder in the library so that the library knows where to store the files. This folder automatically becomes the default save location for the library. For information about including folders and setting the default save location, see Include folders in a library and Customize a library.
