    installed Windows 10 Pro for the first time since 2015 have questions


    I just built a new system and had to install Win 10 Pro again. I know there is a way to customize the explorer tree on the left side when you open a explorer window but I can't for the life of me remember how. This is what I would like to do, I'll include a image of the tree as it is now below.

    I would like to get rid of the quick access ( the space between "desktop and Music") I covered with white for privacy so it doesn't look like that when I open it.

    I'd like to remove OneDrive from the tree and documents under that.

    I would like the explorer tree to open with the rest expanded under "this PC"

    At the bottom you see Seagate Expansion Drive (G) twice I have no idea why that drive that is plugged into a USB port shows up twice in the explorer twice, I would rather only see it one time.

    If someone can help me get my Explorer tree setup as I described I would appreciate it very much

    As a start, does this help ?

    > Remove Quick access from Navigation Pane in Windows 10
    > Open to This PC or Quick access in File Explorer in Windows 10

    Also, have a look at the Related Tutorials at the BOTTOM of the above Tutorials [ there are a few ], as they may also be related.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks Paul,
    That fixed everything except remove OneDrive and the Seagate Expansion drive showing twice. I did look but didn't find any ways to remove those 2 things. the rest I followed the links and thay are fixed now.

    Thanks

    Excellent news.

    OneDrive:

    > Add or Remove OneDrive from Navigation Pane in Windows 10

    Drive showing TWICE:

    > Add or Remove Duplicate Drives in Navigation Pane in Windows 10

    I hope this helps.
