    Windows Explorer changed now called File Explorer


    Hello,

    I have been searching on posts associated with File Explorer but none seem to address my issue.

    Few days ago I was to be able to see Folders, video, music , docs etc on the left hand side, I had updated Office 2019 and for some reason I can no longer see any folders that use to appear on the left screen.

    Does anyone know how I can go back and be able to see the folders.

    I am using Windows 10 v2004 OS Build 19041.388Windows Explorer changed now called File Explorer-file-explorer.png

    Actually, File Explorer and Windows Explorer are two different functions.

    In File Explorer, click on the Navigation pane icon on the toolbar, and click the Navigation pane entry in the drop down list.

    OldNavyGuy,

    Much appreciate your help. I now can see my folders , music and video files.

    And for some bizarre reason that File Explorer has now called My Computer, I cant remember what I did for that to happen, I was playing around with the views, options before I asked for help.

    Says My Computer on my 1909 Pro system.

    You can right-click on the entry, and select Rename.

    Call it anything you want.
