    My Hard Drive ID

    Why, now that I am running Windows 10, is my hard drive identified as ThisPC > Windows8_OS (C:)?

    It's named the same as it was before you installed Windows 10, just highlight it, right click it, select rename and name it what you want.

    It had occurred to me that might be the case, but I also thought the Microsoft folks would rename the thing in the process of installing the New And Improved OS.

    Thanks for the feedback.
