Windows 10: File explorer, device and drives in "this computer"
File explorer, device and drives in "this computer"
in the "this computer " window pane on windows 10 , the place where you can choose your drives, my dads computer has got a glitch where the drives disappear in the drop down menu , when you click the arrow they appear
to me it is no hassle , but to him the sky is falling , so to save my sanity does anyone know how to get rid of the drop down menu style so that the drives are in view all the time
----- i did make a thread previously , but it was moved to drivers and hardware , my question is neither driver nor hardware problem
If I understand correctly you want to disable group by Type in "This Computer" folder
If that's what you want just right click anywhere in empty space on "This computer" window and in context menu select Group by>(none)
Then views like Devices and drives, folders etc will be gone everything will be in single list not grouped.
yep i know about that , but as he is used to the placement i don't want to change it , i just want to get rid of the drop down
only simple solution i know is to group by none. there may be other more difficult solutions involving regedit or some plugins.
i'm quite comfortable at registry hacks , so if anyone knows of one , please share
I have 2 HDDs split into 2 drives each: C,D,E,F.. I also have one DVD drive. Also one Card Reader hooked to USB. So what the file explorer shows is C, D, E, F, DVD, Removable disk, I, J, K, and L. How do I get rid of these extra drives? They do...
I have one DVD drive, with no DVD in it, yet File Explorer shows three drives, each with files in them. How do I get rid of the two phantom drives and get rid of the phantom files in the real DVD drive?
I'm running Windows 10 Pro, Build 10586.71. Can anyone give me an explanation as to why I have my external hard drives showing twice in File Explorer (see Attachment)
I've had this since the first install of Win 10, and it's driving me nuts.
As shown below there are 2 drives missing from the Navigation Pane (vertical bar on the left of the File Explorer).
How do I show them up there?
Thanks in advance.
File explorer only displays my C and D (DVD) drives when launched. I have two other hard drives with two partitions each which do not get displayed under 'This PC'. I landed up 'pinning' the drive letters under 'Quick access'. I spent a lot of time...
