Yeah when i put it under name only files appear but i also need the folder to appear .
But thanks anyway

Is that the bad thing in "Libraries" is that two folders cannot be viewed in two diferent ways ( name, modified date, type) at the same time .

Sorta. Start with the "C" drive, find "Users", then your user folder, then your My Docs folder. Drag and drop the folder onto the taskbar. You will now have a menu entry to go directly to your "My Docs". Right ckick on the start menu and click on "My Docs"?

Guys another question is it possible to rearrange files or folder inside a folder , you know put them in whatever order you want?
Like one can arrange Icons on the desktop? No, not that I know of. Others have mentioned this before.

I may not be following the question exactly but part of the issue might be that a LIBRARY is not a FOLDER and does not behave the same. Within a Library (a collection of FOLDERS at different locations) the Sort/View Options apply to the entire Library (all Folders).

Arranging by Folder basically lists all the Folders included in the Library and the Files in each Folder, sorted by Folder>File Name. Pretty standard.

Arranging by Name sorts ALL Files in ALL of the Library's Folders by Name. You can click on VIEW>Choose Details and select the Folder, Folder Name or Folder Path columns to display each of the Files respective Folders.

So I don't think a Library view can do exactly what you would like. But it could be handy in finding duplicate Filenames in multiple Folders for example.

I hope this helps a little.
