Windows 7: Libraries auto-shared through media streaming?

Windows 8.1 Pro x64 x3 + Windows 10 Preview, Ubuntu

In WMP library view click on organise and then manage libraries

you can either choose to add additional items to the list or remove the default entry for the library first and add just those folders you want to stream.

Well again, as stated in the original post that is the same as editing the system libraries. Aka: not using the Library feature at all, and only including public folders.

So then there is no way to share specific library folders.

As my question is exactly the same as Celeras has posted, I may as well revive this thread.

Fingers crossed there is some fresh thought or a solution to this simple (you would have thought) problem and there is not the hole in functionality that I fear.
