Windows 7: Hiding 'Library Location Details' in Libraries

Hiding 'Library Location Details' in Libraries

Okay, maybe I'm just tired and have been messing around with the computer too much now.

Can anyone help, I just can't work this out.

In Libraries you have Documents, Music etc. Ok. In Documents I have the folders C:\Users\Mark\My Documents selected. In this library the location is hidden and it says neatly at the top '1 location' and the file path is not showing and it looks great.

In my Music and Pictures library I have managed to get a navy blue rectangle with the details 'My Pictures' and C:\Users\Mark showing all the time and I cannot minimize it because it hides all the folders in there. I can't work out how to get it to go away.

I want a neat clean interface - I hate this damned blue rectangle in between all the folders.

Am I making any sense? It's kinda hard to describe it - do I need to take pics maybe?

Any ideas guys? Many, many thanks.

Ok, I hope these screenshots work ok.

ImageShack -

The extra info highlighted only appeared when I added and then removed locations to my library. They weren't there before.

Am I stuck with them?

Many thanks.
