Windows 7: Managing folders in a Library

Managing folders in a Library

I am not able to find the process to delete a folder from my Documents library. The Help function says the following, but I can not find the 'library pane', Includes, nor Locations.
  1. When you no longer need to monitor a folder in a library, you can remove it. When you remove a folder from a library, the folder and its contents are not deleted from their original location.
  2. In the taskbar, click the Windows Explorer button.
  3. In the navigation pane (the left pane), click the library that you want to remove folders from.
  4. In the library pane (above the file list), next to Includes, click Locations.
  5. In the dialog box that appears, click the folder you want to remove, click Remove, and then click OK.

How can I find folders missing from a library
I created a new library and included four folders in it. The library is there but all the folders have gone missing. I looked in every folder in all other libraries and searched with Windows Explorer using the folder names but to no avail. How else can I try to find these folders? Thank you,

Cannot paste to any library folders
I find this to be so lame! I don't exactly get why libraries are so useful, but for whatever reason, they appear to be what MS wants me to use when working with folders because it's a heckuva lot easier to navigate my library folders in the left-side Windows Explorer navigation pane than it is to...
