    Removing entries in navigation pane?

    My navigation pane shows Joseph Simpson (‘my name’) & My PC. Under My PC (expanded) I can see my external H-drives; but they do not show under ‘my name’. Both are almost the same as far as entries (Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Music, etc. etc. Would it be safe to move most of the content in each entry from ‘my name’ to My PC & delete the listed entries under ‘my name’ (remove clutter)?
    Most of my data is stored on the external Hdd’s. Would that upset the apple cart as my name (Joseph Simpson) is the only account on this computer, therefore is the only administrator account. Both expanded together becomes a little confusing.
    This is how MS set up the computer’s navigation pane after the new Recovery ran.
    Not being a computer guru, I’m assuming it was a total restore from a Dell recovery partition on the Hdd, as this was a refurbished unit with 10 pro already installed.

    Hello Joseph, :)

    The folders you see under "My PC" (aka: "This PC") are links to the folders under "Joseph Simpson". You could use the method in the tutorial below to safely remove the folders under "My PC" without affecting them under "Joseph Simpson".
