    It should look something like this, work on your view settings or something.

    Referring to your first post, thanks but that is all too risky for me. My installation is very touchy, for instance if I restart the computer I lose my AMD video drivers. I have to turn it off, wait, and turn it on again. All these problems since Fall Creators Update, which added nothing useful. If my train sim ran on Linux I would be gone from Windows World in a flash.

    I will try the suggestions in your second post.

    Thanks

    Your screenshot of File Explorer is just plain wrong!

    You have selected 'This PC' in the navigation pane and what you should see in the right hand pane is a list of the 'Folders' and 'Devices and drives', in fact the same list as you see in the navigation pane beneath 'This PC'. Instead you are seeing the contents of your C: drive. It should look like this...

    Do you have any other accounts you can sign in with? If so, does File Explorer behave the same 'odd' way?

    Does it still look 'wrong' after a Restart?
    1, I have two user accounts but don't seem to be able to switch between them. I bypassed signing-in.


    2. Yes it does.

    Also, this is not how it comes up straight away. I got there by fiddling around, but I just wanted to demonstrate that Explorer is aware of HDD (C: ) and all its sub-folders. The computer works OK, it's just inconvenient that HDD (C: ) does not appear in the left pane. I'm thinking of doing a System Restore, although I will lose a few things, and I couldn't be sure that it would fix the issue. All this nonsense has happened after Fall Creators Update, a real disaster IMHO.

    Run the beta log collector and post a zip into this thread:
    (use extract > open)
    log collector v2-beta08.zip
    If the beta log collector does not work then use the DM log collector:
    BSOD - Posting Instructions - Windows 10 Forums
    The beta log collector is preferred as it collects more information for troubleshooting.

    Problem Solved


    Found it. I use an app called Winaero Tweaker that is very useful. However somehow I had unintentionally set the C: drive not to show in Explorer. And guess what, C: drive didn't show in Explorer!

    Sorry to waste your time and thanks for all the efforts to help.

    It was NOT a waste of time. Your experience is a valuable lesson and will benefit other readers: When tweaking be careful what you ask for, you may not get exactly what you expect.

    My installation is very touchy, for instance if I restart the computer I lose my AMD video drivers. I have to turn it off, wait, and turn it on again. All these problems since Fall Creators Update, which added nothing useful...
    Personally, I avoid using tweakers. Often symptoms such as yours are down to a tweak or a registry hack that comes back to bite you further down the line

    You're probably right, but Winaero Tweaker does some really neat things. And it didn't mess anything up until this episode, which was just carelessness on my part. Check it out!

    No offence, but I'd rather not. :)

    I upgraded from 7 to 10 in August 2015 and have had every version upgrade since then go smoothly and trouble-free. A large part of that I put down to resisting the urge to tweak.
