changing the structure of library folder?

First, sorry for my bad English..

I put many books in Calibre, and they all start from author's name folder in its library folder. I usually don't know the authors' name and the structure of library folder makes me so hard to find a book that I want to find.

I want to see the titles first when I enter the root of library folder.

Could anyone tell me if it's possible?

Thanks.

If you use Calibre itself to find the books then you should not have this issue as Calibre allows for searching/sorting on any field.

Never, NEVER, enter the root of library folder!! At least not until you have used Calibre for many months.
You can do serious damage to your library if you go and change things directly without telling Calibre.

Calibre GUI - good, root folder - bad.

I just wanted to use the library by using dropbox on my tablet applications directly.. And I've now figured that something can not be exactly fit with my taste and needed to study more and more about Calibre..

Thank you for all your answers

I had the same problem and my solution was rather simple (though, it does take a bit more room and an extra action).

I simply tell Calibre to connect to a folder (in my case, my Skydrive folder) and update that. That way I have full control about how my library on my shared folder is.
