I'm a program manager on the Windows Experience team. I work on Windows Explorer, desktop search, and other features that help users find and organize their stuff.


  • Windows 7: Find and Organize Part 1 - The User Experience

    Yes, users (and developers!) can create new libraries in addition to being able to include more folders in the exising libraries like Documents, Music, and Pictures.

    For example, suppose you store your visual studio projects in d:\projects.  You can create a new "VS Projects" library and include the d:\projects folder in it.  This new "VS Projects" library shows up alongside your Documents, Music, and Pictures libraries.  From it, you can take advantage of library features shown in the video like the the new views for finding things "by type" or "by date modified" and the search box improvements for building queries.

    Your files, of course, remain in d:\projects.  The "VS Projects" library just provides you with a convenient way to find and organize those files.  If you had a second folder where you keep additional visual studio projects (e.g. d:\moreprojects), you could include it in your "VS Projects" library, too.
