    Question about Explorer


    When I open File Explorer, the navigation pane shows these folders:

    When I right click a file or folder and copy or move to folder, I get this:

    My problem is Google Drive is not included in the right click option, any way to get that?

    Thanks dalchina, that works for copying, and I did the same for some the subfolders in Google Drive, might be better off mapping Google Drive.

    Note you can also move items via Send to by using the SHIFT key:

    That's cool, but mapping seems to be the way to go.

    SIDEBAR --

    It's really amazed me that with all the open source alternative softwares out there (LibreOffice, Firefox) that someone hasn't offered a solid alternative to FILE EXPLORER? I'm not saying a 'theme' that takes over the entire start menu, taskbar, and all that.

    I just want someone to show Microsoft what FILE EXPLORER should have been at the release of Windows 10. No Quick Access, no 3D Objects, a simple and clean interface. This can't be that hard.

    I agree Pool Man, back in the day I used to write and sell shareware. There were many alternatives to FE but I don't think any of them could replace it completely.

    For getting rid of File Explorer [and the older Windows Explorer] do a test first. With no programs open bring up Task Manager, scroll way down to Windows processes section and at the bottom do an End Task on the Windows Explorer entry. Then close Task Manager. What can now be done?

    To get back usually requires Ctrl+Alt+Del and Sign Out. Just shows how much File Explorer is at the core of Windows, has been that way through the versions. Windows 3.x and earlier was different as it required DOS be installed first, Windows 95 was the beginning of the move to merging DOS and the GUI into one OS.
