    Can I remove this fictitious drive ?


    I installed PowerISO 2 days ago.
    I used it to burn an iso.
    Now its presence becomes permanent in my File Explorer.
    Is there a way to remove it ? Do I have to uninstall it if I want to remove it from File Explorer ?
    Thank you.

    I had this a long time ago, maybe in Windows 7 sure checked the settings in PowerISO but believe this is normal of course to be there as Virtual drive, can not recall myself if can be removed unless you remove the software. As should not cause an issue. Windows 10 can burn an ISO without this or try other free software Burnaware.

    Try right clicking the iso and selecting "Open with", then select "File Explorer" and make it the default (assuming you want it default).

    Otherwise, open "Default Programs" in Settings and set "Windows Disc Image Burner" as the default.

    It's uninstalled.
    I used it just for testing with an Android iso file.

    So it worked for you without PowerISO ? Good.
