You need to provide just the site url.  Delete the end up through Shared Documents and try again.  You will then see all the files and be able to filter by folderpath if needed.

Looking again at your initial pic, it doesn't look like a full url for a SharePoint site.  Those usually have

.../sites/SiteName  at the end.  It look like you are connecting to the root SharePoint for your tenant.  Did you copy your url from your SharePoint site where you see your desired documents?  

 

Also, usually there is a scroll bar at the bottom you can use to scroll right and see the FolderPath column.

I select "Web" get data in Power BI desktop and it worked with the folder URL.
