Right clicking the folder should show its path. Might need a change.

I'm confused. You said "I can find it by 'Search window and view all".

Check in your Recycle Bin, you might have accidentally deleted it.
Also, check in Neighboring folders that were next to that folder, you could have accidnetally slipped and dragged it into another folder.
Also, is F: a Network Drive (ie) not on the Local computer? If so, and you accidentally deleted it, it is gone forever. We hope you have a backup, as you always should.

Right-click on it from the search results then select "open file location". This should open its current location, from which you should be able to move it back to its original place.

Thanks to your hints, I was able to retrieve it by creating a 'new folder' and then copying the file from the 'search' drop down into the renamed new window. Kind of an odd thing now since ai have to do couple more clicks to view contents, but at least i have it.
Thanks to all

Copy the contents of the errant folder and drop them in the New file you created so it is in the root of the file, delete the errant folder.

Click on the first pic so it is highlighted. Scroll down to the last pic, hold down your shift key and Click the last Pic, they are now all Highlighted. Right click the Highlighted pics and choose to Cut. they are no copied to the clipboard, put your pointer in the root of the new folder, right click and choose Paste. Or just drag and drop them.
