Default First post and total noob question about folders

Sorry this maybe a really simple question but I come from using a Boss stand alone BR1200 from many years ago so there are a few things I am getting use to when I am working with a DAW. I was just going through the Reaper video on folders and I was trying them on a song that I have been working on.

My question is this; when you have a folder that has, say, three sub folders of guitars, when I play the tracks back, do I hear each subtrack plus the combination of all guitars on the main folder, or is it just the main folder track?

you would hear all three as they are mixed within that folder. It would depend on having any Mutes or Solos active also.

You're watching a Kenny Video I assume? there are more than one video available concerning Folders, Groups, and VCA's, and all are easy to absorb. Though in my personal adventures I have watched some of the Vid's more than a couple times to really catch all the subtle details..

Also page 93 of the user manual has three pic's that help in visualizing a folder and how it works compared to other options
