Libraries empty in Windows 8

The "libaries" feature in Windows 8 has stopped working!!

When you click - it is empty

How do I restore it so that "my documents" appears there?

I tried reset to default, but that seemed to have no effect?

The default should be Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos.

If restoring the defaults does not work, try going to the individual folders. Go to Documents folder and right-click. Do you see Include in Library?

Yes I do, but this has no effect!

All I see in the Library is a Libary-ms file under each heading!
