Windows File System Libraries

Libraries are an easy way to keep track of documents on your computer that are related to one another but not necessarily located in the same directories (folders).¬† For instance, I have created a Library called¬† “WebSites” and in that library, I have included the file directories of the websites that I maintain without merging the files into a single location on the hard drive.
