I cannot believe I am the only one experiencing this problem. I have not modified my setup since the vendor installed Windows 7. The problem is that Explorer contents do not look the same as command prompt "dir" contents.

It has to do with the "desktop.ini" files located in the Documents folders.
It sets a localized display name that Explorer shows.

There is no bug here. Or problem.

logicearth, I read those 2 links. They are helpful, thanks. I'm still not happy with what is going on. I find junction points a little bit offensive because I do my own backups using Explorer and so I don't like to see anything weird happening.

Windows 7 junction points are so offensive to me that I think I may have to switch to linux.

The Library is named Documents. It contains My Documents and Public Documents. Public can be written out by rightclick removing it from any library.

It takes awhile to understand Libraries but then they become useful for various scenarios.

The explorer tree is highly effective for drag n drop operations. Just hold your left click until it expands fully.

Hope it helps.

Eh? What are you talking about? Nothing weird is going on with Junction points. Also, Linux has the same functionality as Junctions as well. Sounds more like you misunderstand what Junctions are.

I didn't say anything was weird about junction points, I said that I just don't like weird things and before reading the 2 links, I thought something was weird.
