Windows 7: Library

Hi everyone, I am not sure if this is the best section to post it in, but its my first time posting on here...

I have never seen this happen before and I would like to know how to fix it.

When you go into your Libraries folder you will see "Documents, Music, Pictures, and Videos"

When I click "Pictures" I see my pictures folder which is what I only want in there..
But I see 4 categories along with it as drop down menus.

They are "Public Pictures" "My Documents" and "Public Documents" I don't know how those even got there, but I was wondering how to get rid of them..

Any help is greatly appreciated,

Thank you!


Edit: Nevermind... Solved my own problem..

I hate it when someone finds the solution to their problem and doesn't share it!

I hate when people don't give people the chance to reply.. I'm sorry I couldn't reply to you right away...

all you had to do was right click on the directory under libraries where the drop downs were, and click Properties, then click to highlight what you want removed,
then click the remove button, and click apply.. then click okay.

I have all of them too, as I'm sure most peole do, as they have been there since day one. They don't bother me because if I click on Music, or Documents or whatever it only opens those. Unless I expand the drop down the others don't come in to play.

When you expand Pictures under Libraries you should only see My Pictures and Public Pictures as shown below: This is the default.
