Windows 7: I cant link to another drive

I cant link to another drive

All my photos are in external drive “F”. From the main library I would have thought clicking “My Pictures” would access the photos on the “F” drive. I can only access my photos by going Computer>F>my pictures. How do I link the C drive to the F drive?

Any help would be appreciated.
