Many of us are still trying to get used to the new Windows interface, so I decided to add some extra Libraries in addition to the default ones, for easy access. I went and right-clicked on Library and clicked on New.
Windows Libraries will not open
I then added a couple of Music folders, Video & my Ebook collections. Everything was working fine. One fine day they just stopped working. When I click on Library, nothing used to happen. I was perplexed. In this case, some may even receive a library-ms is no longer working message.
library-ms is no longer working
I went to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Troubleshooting\All Categories and clicked on System Maintenance.
I clicked on Advanced and unchecked Apply Repair Automatically, because I wanted to know what changes were going to be applied. I ran it and applied the recommended fixes. I rebooted the system. Then I tried to access Libraries again. It still did not work.
Restore Defaults libraries
Then I remembered something I did long back on Windows 7. I went and deleted all the custom ones and default ones except Documents since that was the only one which was working fine. I right-click on Library and clicked on Restore Defaults libraries.
I then tried again and found that it had started working. Maybe the step restored all the settings.
Anyhow, everything is working as it should now. I hope you find this tip helpful. Let us know if this tip helped you fix the issue on Windows 10/8/7.
