Windows 7: Hidden Folders- Help, please?

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Hidden Folders- Help, please?

Well, I have a problem. My Music,Pictures, and Videos folders are all hidden within my libraries. I know how to do all the basics in showing a hidden file/folder (unchecking hide file, setting the folder to the appropriate folder option [in properties], and etc). Well, I right-clicked the folder option (for all of these folders) in my libraries (with hidden folders shown), and there simply wasn't a "hide folder" option. I've also been playing around with these folders under my user options, but to no avail. I would gladly appreciate any help on this topic.

Thanks in advance.
