    Drives missing from File Explorer's Navigation Pane


    Hello,
    As shown below there are 2 drives missing from the Navigation Pane (vertical bar on the left of the File Explorer).
    How do I show them up there?
    Thanks in advance.

    Expand the This PC menu?

    It won't help since the "This PC" menu is at the same level as the 2 shown drives... this is what I get.

    I'd like to have all my drives shown there when I open File Explorer.

    I tried removing all the drives and adding them back using the tutorial below (registry trick) but it is still not showing all the drives...

    I believe Windows is thinking the 2 shown drives are removable that's why they're showing up there.. I recently enabled AHCI in my BIOS

    Yes I got the way I wanted with 2 registry tricks (hide removable drives from Navigation Panel, hide personal folders from "This PC")

    Could be. Is the Remove drives safely icon showing up in the system tray? On Win10 it only shows when removable drives are plugged in(at least it's supposed to work that way)
