    How can I hide the double drive listing in Explorer?

    In Windows 10, whenever I insert a USB or External HDD, it gives me two listings for it in the Explorer pane:

    Is there any way I can remove the second listing? Preferably the standalone one, as I'm used to it being under "This PC", muscle memory y'know.

    Thanks in advance.

After downloading the Windows 10 Tech Preview I've made a bootable USB drive. Am I able to just double click the setup.exe when the pc is on and at my desktop? or do I have to restart & boot from the USB drive? Thank you in advance.
