View Full Version : How to hide folders in W7 libaries?

12-07-2010, 11:07 AM
Found these pics on the net as an example, pretty much My Videos library has started showing the individual folders in the library folder itself, see first picture (http://www.hack7mc.com/wp-content/uploads/ahref/lh4.ggpht.com/videos5B45D.png). EG My videos (empty), public videos (1) etc.

Originally it did not show them and just showed all the content in the folder, see picture 2 (http://i.msdn.microsoft.com/Dd371721.Windows7_10%28en-us,VS.85%29.jpg). I don't mind if it shows it down the left hand side, because I know you can hide that but I don't want it showing in the folder itself.

I haven't added any new folders to it either. Hope this makes sense

Not what I meant but thanks anyway. Look more closely at the pics I posted, not talking about the stuff on the left hand side, talking about the stuff IN the folder (not my content, the folder names/locations etc)

Change the View then, either by View - Select what you want, or by the drop down/Slider on the right of the page.

I think the problem is, in Pic one you have it as arrange by folder. In the second you have arrange by tag.
