Windows 7: How do I change the view of the folders in the Library

How do I change the view of the folders in the Library

I did something to the libraries just now and now the Music and Document folder is a little screwd. Would greatly appreciate some help in changing the view of the 'Documents' to make it look like the 'Pictures' folder. Both 'Library Locations' are exactly the same.

Dear cokejam,
The simplest and sure method of undoing the changes which you made to the Libraries,is to go to the "last System restore point".

hi cokejam, and welcome to sevenforums,

do you want your documents folder to show as large icons?

try this:

you can only see half of the button in my screenshot, but click on that and you can change the view.

Right click in an empty space in the right pane in your library and select Group by->(none). That should give you what you need.

it seems to me you want to remove the public documents (empty) entry, if you right click the documents icon in the library view then select properties click on the public docs then select remove.
