shared folders not seen in remote share computer

Hi all
2 win 7 machine are shared in-between (WORKGROUP).
I use "simple sharing" as in photo.
the folders are not shown directly in remote pc . i can see the folders only if i tick a few times on uesr folder and go all the path \\user\xxx\xxxx\xxx and then get to it.
How can i make shared folders seen directly next to user folder in the network explorer?
