Windows 10: Drive size not shown in "My PC" view

    Drive size not shown in "My PC" view


    I don't know why but when I open "My PC" there is no information about disk size or usage, like the old pie chart. Can I turn that info on?

    I hate that I cant easily monitor my disk space.

    Thanks for the reply King but that just gave me a bigger thumbnail, but again without disk capacity info.
    I do appreciate the reply.

    send a screen shot now you have made that change but before you do, click the view tab at the top as there is defo an option to see the drive space as a bar under the drive.

    Here's a little trick. Hold the CTRL key, and roll your mouse wheel backward/forward until you get what you want. It'll go thru all kinds of options/display. Stop when you get to the one you like.

    Has no one spotted the set of icons below the 'Search this PC' box? What are they doing there?
    (and what's a blue shell for?)

    And the column names are wrong. For the 'This PC' view they should be:
    Name, Type, Total size, Free space

    Has this Explorer been 'Tweaked' in some way?

    That's all Classic Shell Explorer Bar.

    Thanks, I never use it so didn't recognise it. Can Classic Shell change the customisation of folder views? Because the view being used for 'This PC' appears to be one that should only be used for Folders. 'Size' isn't exactly a useful description of a hard drive, 'Total size/Free space' is what you need to know for the 'This PC' view.

    Has the OP just had the Fall Creators Update? If so, maybe that doesn't sit well with the version of Classic Shell they have?
