    Shortcut for "My computer"


    Hi,

    for Explorer I found "WIN+E".

    But for "My Computer" (the one that shows C: D: etc.), what is the shortcut?

    Thanks!

    I don't think there is one as my computer icon was dropped at some point in the past. You can use this guide to bring the icon back.

    It should still be Win+E but set 'open file explorer to: This PC' instead of Quick Access in Folder Options.

    Ops, I already use WIN+E for Quick access folders and I work with it. I don't want to change like in the first answer.

    The other answers are about to create an icon for My computer but I already have it (on W10 Pro).

    So I will keep to use it without an hotkey because I don't want to use 3rd party software. :-(

    I'm not sure what you're after then.

    If you like, you could assign a keyboard shortcut to the "This PC" shortcut I posted above, and "Pin to taskbar".

    Sorry If I back, I obtain everything (My PC, and the chance to make an hotkey), but I cannot make an hotkey that I want.

    I want SHIFT+WIN+another letter to open my new My PC icon but I cannot select "WIN" hotkey at all.

    Why this happen? It is "WIN" blocked by the OS?
