    windows 10 "This PC" file cabinet


    Can anyone explain the win 10 file cabinet to me.

    Starting with the "Quick Access" department? What is it and how do I use it ?

    thank you, Oscar

    Let me change the above post.

    In window 10 Pro, when you click on the "This PC" folder, a window opens and a bunch of directories and that kind of stuff comes on the screen. Another name for this window is "File cabinet".

    Anyway, what is the "Quick Access" section for and where does all those files and such come from ?windows 10 "This PC" file cabinet-filecab.png

    There was a program years ago that came with Packard Bell computers [and maybe others] that had a picture of an office for the desktop background. The explanations were that the hard drive was the file cabinet, the drawers were storage for the folders that contained the files. I seem to recall it was about when the DOS directories were renamed to folders, probably Win95.

    Quick Access is just what it sounds like. It's what Microsoft thinks are shortcuts to directories that you might want to use often. You can Customize Quick Access and Add or remove shortcuts or choose to have This PC replace it.How to Use Quick Access in Windows 10 - dummies
