Win 7 Libraries can be for subjects not just types of files.
Microsoft’s default Windows Libraries mislead people into thinking libraries are for types of files (Music, Video etc). Libraries can be used for any heading or subject you like as long as they are separated by folder in their original location.
Let’s say a super-villain is has an evil plan to take over the world. The plan files are in several locations. A Windows Library could bring all those folders into a single view for easier access (eg by our hero with only moments at the computer before being caught by henchmen)
On the Libraries heading in Explorer, right-mouse click, choose New | Library,
Give the Library a name and then you have a library but no contents.
Microsoft has put a helpful ‘Include a folder’ link in the pane to get you started. Bring in folders from different places under the one library as our super-villain has done.
His documents, pictures, videos and even music for a single (evil) project can be found in a single library.
