Windows 7: Working with libraries???

Working with libraries???

I have a library that I've created called "E-Mail Stuff". Within that library I want to see 1 folder called "Emoticons".

Problem: When I go thru the process of adding the folder "Emoticons" to the "E-Mail" library, what I end up with is all of the folder inside the "Emoticon" folder. Not the "Emoticons" folder itself.

Can anybody tell me how do I do this? Am I missing something here?

I've included a screen shot here for further clarification.

You could just include the whole "e-mail" folder. That would show all folders.

To get the effect you want you would have to create a folder within "Emoticons" with a similar name or rename "Emoticons" and create "Emoticons" withing the renamed folder you include in the library.
