Windows 7: Music Library showing public folder as well?

Music Library showing public folder as well?

In the default libraries there is a corresponding public folder of each library e.g. Documents/public documents, Pictures/public pictures etc...

But the only library showing the public folder is the music library. Why is this and how can I make it not show without removing the public music folder?


Thanks.

underneath where it says music library (the title of the folder) it says 'includes 2 locations'. click that and then remove the public folder from there.
The public folder will still exist, it just wont be included in the music library.

No I still wanted it to be on the left hand list but not in the main window.

I fixed it by reseting folders and restoring defaults. All was good after that.

All of my Libraries look like the pic on the right by default.....showing each location separately. You can make it look like the pic on the left by right clicking and changing the Group By to (None). To clear any changes you make, click Arrange by: and select Clear changes.

You can also drag a folder you choose to the favorite links for quick access.
