Windows 10: C: drive does not show up in Windows Explorer sidebar (left) Solved

    C: drive does not show up in Windows Explorer sidebar (left)

    BIG EDIT: Apparently, my I: drive doesn't show up either... drives C:, D: and I: are partitions of one of an SSD, the other are partitions of another hard disk. I'm now guessing that D: drive is the problem..

    I've just installed the Windows 10 17127 Insider Preview from the offline ISO and for some reason my C: drive (on which Windows is installed) does not show up in the Windows Explorer sidebar (on the left). Sadly, it doesn't even appear in 'Browse' dialogs in other programs.

    If it matters, my D: drive is Ext4 and had Ubuntu installed on it before I (re)installed Windows.Click image for larger version.

    Hello PhantomR, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Usually, only removable drives show separately in the navigation pane.

    If you expand open the "This PC" group in the navigation pane, you should see all drives under it.

    Thank you very much for the welcome and also for your great help, @Brink!! I'm surprised I didn't know that after having used Windows for a long, long time ^_^.

    You're most welcome.

    It's really not one of those things you think about since the drives do show separately by default.
