    You could collapse the 'Folders' portion with the small arrow:

    Hello klappa,

    The tutorial below can help show you how to remove "Folders" from This PC.

    This PC 'Folders' - Add or Remove in Windows 10

    If you are referring to Quick access instead, then the tutorial below can help to open File Explorer to "This PC" instead of "Quick access".

    File Explorer - Open to 'This PC' or 'Quick access'

    Was it that simple! Thanks a bunch! This was never an option in Windows 8 i believe.
