    USB drive on Desktop

    Why does W10 File Explorer list a USB 3.0 flash drive on the Desktop? No other USB device or standard drive is there.

    Win 7 didn't include the stick on the Desktop. Don't recall seeing it there in 8/8.1 either.
    This flash drive appeared in those systems only under the usual MY COMPUTER (This PC) listings.

    My USB 3 appears here and also under "This PC" when it's expanded, never seen it on the actual desktop. Strange.

    Exactly. File Manager alone is where the oddity appears...or so it appears. ^_^
