    what?!?! When you selected "Content" yours now shows the "Details"..... ok.... try this.
    Push and hold the "Atl" key for about 2 seconds while this windows is active. It should bring up some little letters and numbers.

    With those letters up type the letter "V" and the "L". This will give your keyboard access to that little selection window. See if you can move the selection to where it needs to be.... perhaps there is something wrong with the cursor selection on your pc??? Oh, and don't forget to press "Enter" to select it. :-P

    I've done what you've suggested, but still this does nothing to display the storage space bars of my drives.

    well.... fudge. I'm out of ideas. It almost looks like your windows installation is corrupted somehow. I've got 2 PC's a laptop and a VM running 10. and even though they were all upgraded or installed differently, they all work the way I've described. Sorry, But I'm going to have to bow out on this one. It might be worth your time to try starting a new thread. This one's been closed for eome time. Not sure how many people are going to even see what we did here. Good luck!!!!

    Been there done that and this doesn't display the storage space bars on any of my drives.
    So far... everything I've tried has failed to display the storage space bars for any of my drives.
    Oddly enough,
    the storage space bars do display when I attempt to upload images and select My PC?

    Thanks for this suggestion.
    Resetting the folder view options to default didn't bring up the storage bars for any of my drives.
    No matter what view I set it as, the storage bare still doesn't show. Even after setting the folder view options to default. Click image for larger version.
