Windows 10: Can't hide empty dvd drives in windows 10
Can't hide empty dvd drives in windows 10
I am using Windows 10 pro.
I can't hide empty dvd drives in Explorer even though "Hide Empty Drives" and " Do Not Show Hidden Files" are both checked in File Explorer Options/View.
It used to be the case some months ago that my DVD drive was hidden. And I recall others needing to be advised they had to put a disk in to make it visible in explorer.
But as you say, I find it's always visible notwithstanding that setting.
Same for me dal, except for me its always showed. Which is ok for me.
Hi @oxley0cjy, welcome to tenforums.com!
You will need to remove the drive letter in Disk Management, (but then you won't be able to use the drive!),
or, use "Old/New Explorer" to enable 'classic drive groupings' which gives you the option to collapse the 'Removable Drive' group.
For interest (?)
Here is the registry change when the setting 'Hide empty drives' changes:
changes to 1
So the GUI setting is at least reflected in a reg. change.
Hello, I usually work with hidden files enabled, and would like to hide empty drives, but it seems my Win 10 Single Language doesn't have this feature, is this normal? :(
As you see in the screenshot Explorer just sits there trying to load the folder I've requested. This happens, seemingly, randomly, at least I haven't been able to find a pattern. If I unmount all network drives the problem disappears....
"This folder is empty" message displayed by Microsoft OneDrive although the folder has thousands of subfolder with over 20 000 files!
This error has been since Windows 10 OneDrive was introduced.
I have Windows10 with dual monitors. When I start Windows the taskbar on Monitor 2 is visible and won't move. If I turn Cortana on and off it resumes auto-hiding but I have to do this every time I start Windows 10.
I am trying to delete whole recycle bin. As I highlight, right click and delete, a box called running actions comes up with a green bar showing the delete process. However the delete process does not finish and I now have 5 running actions boxes...
