Windows 7: Libaries - Music shown as menu / hide folder list

Libaries - Music shown as menu / hide folder list

i'm really not sure how to explain this but i'll try my best. i'm really picky when it comes to win customization and one thing i wanna do is one i don't know how in win7.

on start menu, I edited "music" "link" to "display as menu" and I want it that way.

what i don't want is to show me list of folders included in libary. (i have included only "my music" in libary so i want i to display content right away). screenshot will explain.

can this be done?

thank you all for helping in advance.
i know i'm picky

Hello QuiGon, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since you only have your "My Music" folder and not the Public folder location in your library anyways, you might see if using step 2 in OPTION ONE of the tutorial below may help. It will change your "Music" Start Menu button to open directly from your C:\Users\(user-name)\My Music folder location instead of your Music library.

Start Menu User Folder Buttons - Open to Users Instead of Libraries

Hope this helps,
