Windows 7: Wonky Library view

Wonky Library view

I've always disliked the Libraries feature as I much prefer to work with absolute paths rather than this "it's over there, somewhere" approach to finding files (one reason I can't stand the whole cloud thing..) anyway...

When I click on Libraries -> Documents, it shows me in one giant long list all the files in my documents folder, without the folder structure. All 39,950 files in one great big long list.

If I right-click the Documents library, it's showing the contents of "D:\Users\Myusername" If I change the monitored folder to the "D:\Users\Myusername\My Documents" folder, it refuses to show the My Documents folder and instead simply shows the D:\Users\Myusername folder with a flat file structure.

Any thoughts? Thanks!

I think this is probably what you want.

I made them myself from a blank folder icon and icons off the web using IcoFX portable (still free from IcoFX Portable | PortableApps.com - Portable software for USB, portable and cloud drives)

Thank you, I had it displaying by "Name" because the folders weren't alphabetized. Figured it all out now.
