What appears there (Network Places) are active devices. Add a profile to a device on your network and it will appear there.

If a device is not connected and has not profile (a NIC has a profile for example), it won't show up there.

I assume you want to show a shared folder from a server or other device and you can do this by using map network drive.  The folder would then show up as a drive under my computer.
