Well I can tell you how to get rid of public documents. Expand documents in windows explorer and choose remove location from library.

Hello Doomgiver, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could set the Documents library to Group by -> (None) to no longer have the folder paths show like that.
File and Folder Arrangement - Group by - Sort by - Arrange by
If you removed the "C:\Users\Public\Documents" folder, then the tutorial below will help show you how to include it back into your Documents library to be able to view and access it's files in your Documents library again.
Library - Include a Folder
Hope this helps,
Shawn

That is odd, as mine does not show that way.

Do you have it set to arrange by folder now ?

If you`re good mark the thread solved.
