Windows 7: Windows 7 Libraries shows list of folders

Windows 7 Libraries shows list of folders

Hello everyone,

I'm not sure this is the right place for my question, so please move it to the right place if it isn't.
My problem is that ever since I changed the list of folders in Music/Video/Photos library, windows explorer insist on showing me the list of the folders in each library (picture 1- the GUI is in Hebrew but just notice that there is an address line circled).
I tried restoring the libraries to their default setting but it didn't help. In my Documents library these address lines do not show and I only see the content of the folders that are included in the library (and there are many).

I tried to find solution on the internet but no luck!

I know it seems like a minor issue but I'd appreciate any help.

Want Folders Not Libraries
I've been running XP Pro for a while with no issues but bought a new desktop and laptop a couple of months ago and so ended up with 7. For the most part it is fine. But one thing is driving me crazy and I don't know it is possible to go back to older style organization or not. I had created a...

Libraries and folders
The advent of libraries appears to be a major step forward with Windows 7. It seems a very smart idea. But I'm a bit confused about how libraries integrate with folders. I generally move my folders locations to a separate drive from the OS to keep all my data in a single easy to backup place,...
