BTW Libraries ARE NOT folders...they are just collaborators that pretty much apply symbolic links to one link

Exactly. I would rather just open the folder not go through another link. It seems pointless.

I have been doing research but my solution seems to be the only workaround...

I also cannot see how you justify not using Windows 7 due to Libraries

I find them highly annoying and redundant. What are your solutions? I found out how to hide them Windows explorer but it doesn't help.

BTW How is this organization method horrible...unless you are hiding something that the Documents library keeps pulling up
bump...the best solution I could find
