Windows 7: favorites folders not showing in explorer

favorites folders not showing in explorer

I have a few subfolders in the favorites folder, and although I can see the subfolder in explorer, it doesn't show up in the folder tree on the left. Even if I go to the subfolder (doubleclicking in the main view), it still doesn't show up in the tree on the left.

Is it because it's a special kind of folder, and has everyone the same behaviour, or is something wrong at my end?

Windows Seven's default doesn't show all folders. Go to "folder options" and at the bottom is the navigation pane options, check "show all folders" then OK. That should do the trick for ya if I understand you correctly.

Sorry for replying so late.
It isn't a hidden folder, just a folder I made inside the 'favorites' folder.
Anyway, it seems to be OK now. Don't know why though. I haven't even rebooted since I noticed it. Thanks anyway.

Favorites: how to move sub-folders mixed with primary folders
I have somehow made a disastrous mess of my favorites. I looked online for answers to this problem, and all I can find for a solution is cut and paste. This makes no sense to me for this particular issue because there's no way to "un-indent" a sub-folder and move it back in line with the primary...
