The advantage of your "correction" is clear. However, note that "folder" is the correct terminology for that structure in windows. The OP has consistently explained the problem from an application view.

    Correct terminology, perhaps, if you buy (hook, line and sinker) M$'s (non-standard) terminology as an acceptable standard.

    The term "folder" is correct for any GUI environment that represents directories as such. At the system level where I live it's a directory.
