I cannot find the libraries and its settings

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Good day experts,

I want to backup my Libraries and all its contents and settings and make it a single file. For example:

Doc.lib: This file composed of links with all its folders and the information on the icons that are used for the library and its view type such as thumbnails and etc… This is just an example. I am not sure if there is such a file with this kind of settings that exists and I'm not sure on how to make a backup for this. So I am asking everyone if I can make a backup of all the libraries on my computer. If so, please send me some suggestions.

You can either do this manually, by accessing the directory


Where each of the libraries defines on your system is saved with .library-ms extension.

(If for some reason the default library setting are not there, lookup in registry for "HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerShell" Folders with value "{1B3EA5DC-B587-4786-B4EF-BD1DC332AEAE}".



Or if you want you can use Windows 7 library tool, which provides very convenient way to access, modify and backup library listing.
