Windows 7: A weakness of Library in "Windows 7"

A weakness of Library in "Windows 7"

I have created a library of a folder (frequently used) which I believed if created a new library and include that folder in my library it could be easier to access the files but there is one drawback of library. That is
Suppose I opened my folder from library. Now I want to save a image created in Photoshop. Now I want to copy the location from address bar pressing "Alt + D" and the path becomes like this: "Libraries\Ramesh Files". and photoshop does not recognises the location where to save because it does not know where is library?

In my opinion the path copied should be the original location of that folder so that I could easily place that image in that original folder.

Being a Book Designer, I felt so. Am I wrong?

Sadly, translating the path in the filename box is not current possible. For the time being, you should convert Library paths before using them, simply visit the location in Explorer, then click on an empty spot of the address bar.

WMP briefly opens in "Library" then switches to "Now Playing"
Well, can't get more specific than the title. This little anomaly happened sometime this afternoon probably when I downloaded Spotify. Anyway, when I open Windows Media Player I usually expect to be taken straight to the Library by default. Not anymore. Now I get a brief, momentary flash of the...
