De-deprecate Windows Libraries
Problem: If you know how to use Libraries -- mainstay of Win7/Win8 file organization, part of Windows Media Player since pterodactyl times -- you’ll be surprised to learn that Windows 8.1 goes to great lengths to break and hide them. If you don’t use Libraries, it would be worthwhile to see what you’ve been missing.
Log onto Windows using a Microsoft account that was used in Windows 8, and your Libraries are intact. But if you use a new Microsoft account, or if you log on with a Local account, your Libraries are all messed up: The Documents Library includes the \Documents and SkyDrive Documents folders, while the Pictures, Music, and Videos Libraries all lack the associated Public folders.
