I want to be able to customize the sidebar like a Mac. For example, I want to remove the libraries. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate.

You can remove a library by right-clicking on one of them and clicking "Delete". If you want to keep one of them, click on "Don't show in navigation pane". To remove favorites, right-click and click "Remove". Removing mounted drives in the sidebar is not possible, removing headers is not possible either. (Maybe it is possible by changing registry values, but I don't know about that.)

Can´t put the library back now after ticking that box. – user89272 Jan 29 '14 at 22:43
