Hide, block libraries in Windows 7


If you’ve used Windows 7 then you might have noticed a separate column named Libraries where you can find 4 folders such as documents, pictures, videos and music which I personally find it very useless and it actually irritates you when you’re browsing through folder structure. You apparently can’t remove the standard defaults from Microsoft, so askvg has got a registry hack utility that does the job.

All you need to do is, Just run a small Registry script to disable it. Download following ZIP file, extract it and run the “Disable Libraries in Windows 7.REG” file:

Download Registry Script

Asusual, once you’ve run the registry file, you need to restart the system to apply the settings and there you go ! You will not be able to see the libraries icon in the Windows explorer.

Note : You cannot restore back the libraries once you’ve disabled it.
