Libraries missing from This PC Windows Explorer

I can see the libraries in the navigation pane but ever since the latest update with tabbed Explorer, the libraries above Devices and Drives (as per the image) have disappeared.
I've tried the usual options but those mainly apply to the navigation pane.
Does anyone know how to reinstate them above devices and drives?

Hey Marc,

I noticed the missing folders after updating Windows 11 and immediately searched for a solution. I found a registry hack from Brink over at ElevenForum which did the trick for me. Brink is a brainiac and everything he posts is spot on so I have no problem using and/or recommending his hacks.

You can read through his guide and download his registry hack here: https://www.elevenforum.com/t/add-or-remove-folders-under-this-pc-in-file-explorer-in-windows-11.7122/

Thanks, Jim
That's exactly what I was looking for and the reg hack did the trick.
Yes, Brink really knows his stuff and you can trust his tips and tricks 100%.
Cheers, mate!
