Windows 10: Bar Graph showing drive usage Solved

    Bar Graph showing drive usage

    I used to show under "My Computer" a bar graph showing amount of space used and available. Today it just shows an icon for drive. I tried all different "views" and none showed the bar graph. How do I get it back?

    Hello Tom, :)

    Setting layout to "Tiles" should get you back to default. If not, then make sure you also have "Group by" and "Sort by" set to "Type".

    Open File Explorer at This PC. Click on the View tab. Here there's a list of all the available views, from 'Extra large icons' to 'Details'.

    Hover your mouse over each one and it give you a preview of how it will look. 'Tiles' and 'Content' both have bar graphs. Click on the one you want to change to that view.

    If all else fails, you can use Option One in the tutorial below to reset folder views back to default.
