    how to access documents on internal hdd

    May I ask a question on behalf of my son Please.

    He has just updated his desktop from windows 7 to windows 10,All went fine.
    The only issue that he has,He has all the documents photos etc on a second internal hdd and the C drive has only the Windows ten operating system.

    How does he access the documents and photos etc from the start and then select documents that are on the left,At the moment he selects documents in the start menu it shows blank,As they are on another hdd.

    Please hoe would he set up the start menu to access the second hdd.

    Many thanks.

    On the left pane, Right click on Documents->Properties->Location->Find Target and change to point to the folder on the second internal disk. Click Apply
