Customizing Library Views

I have this issue, where I added an extra folder to a library and it changed how the library was viewed. I do not know how the change back to the other view, as I much preferred that view.

I would like it to look like how my Documents Library views, without stating the file everything is in.

For example:

Hello Dominic, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could click on Group by -> (None) to no longer have your Documents grouped by folders.

File and Folder Arrangement - Group by - Sort by - Arrange by

Next, click on View by -> Details to have columns.

File and Folder Arrangement - Change in Windows Explorer Window

Hope this helps,
Shawn
