I have been able to do this on my 2 other WIn 7 machines, but on this machine, when I right click libraries to "Do not show in navigation pane" the option is not there. When I go to the folders Properties, the option to Shown in Navigation Pane is grayed out and checked. I am an Administrator on this machine which has no other users. What am I missing here? Of course we all know deleting libraries is useless since so many applications re-create them when launched, but I have found on my other machines that Removing from Navigation Pane is a perma setting.
