    Including a directory in a library

    I'm trying to include a local directory in my Documents library, something I haven't tried before.

    I'm using instructions in a page from windows.microsoft.com titled "Include folders in a library." The process appears to be pretty simple: display the containing folder in Windows Explorer, right click the target folder, select "Include in Library," and select the library.

    When I right click in the target folder, though, there's no "Include in Library" command in the context menu.

    Does anyone know what is happening here, and how to deal with it?

    J,

    Hard to tell as it works just fine on my Win 8.1 Update1 machine & my Win 7 HP SP-1 machine.

    You might find this link helpful, I sure did. Don't thank me, Thank Fred, he has helped me a lot of times.

    I cannot get the link to work, but if I cut and paste in my firefox it opens.

    The link is out of date, but I found an explanation elsewhere on the web.

    Whether the context menu includes "Include in Library" is determined by a Registry entry. Several websites offer scripts for turning it on and off. Running someone else's Registry script sounds a little too adventurous for me, and I understand that the changes are rather complex, so I'm going to refer to the problem to my company's IT department.
