    I was wondering/can't figure out if I can hide the desktop library and other things from the file explorer. Is it possible? Thanks!

    Hello Karspankey, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    It looks like you have Show all folders turned on for the navigation pane. Turning it off should sort this for you.

    Thanks for the welcome and help! I figured it'd be that easy, but I guess I right clicked everywhere but the empty space!
