    Adding new options to This Computer in Windows 10


    Can anyone tell me if it is possible to add more options to This PC in Windows 10 beyond the default set of Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures and Videos?

    I would like to add at least one more option like New Folder shown below:

    You can add as many as fit on your HD.

    Easiest way would be to use a utility such as Winaero Tweaker:

    I would rather not use any third-party software if that is possible.

    I suppose.
    A reputable utility is much easier though,
    less chance of screwing something up messing around with the Registry manually!

    I do not recall having heard of this product before. Is Winaero Tweaker reputable?

    In my opinion it is.
    It's widely used by many. I've never had a problem with it.

    I just used Winaero Tweaker to add One Drive to My PC. Then went right back and took it off. Simple, safe, quick. Just browse to the folder you want or look at the long list of shell locations available.

    Thanks to the respondents. I will have to try Winaero Tweaker in the next few days.
