My windows explorer window looks wrong

I just noticed that my "windows explorer" window looks odd or maybe I just never noticed. Why Libraries, Homegroup, Terri, Computer, Network, Control Panel, Recycle Bin, listed UNDER "desktop". When I google images of windows explorer, none of them show these listed under "desktop" I realize that the recycle bin is on the desktop so that's why it's listed but it seems like something is wrong.

Hello sputterbug,

It looks like you have Show all folders turned on for the navigation pane. Turning it off should get you back to default.
