    USB flashdrive

    I got this question for my Brother. His computer is Windows 7 mine is Windows 8.1 I realize 7 and 8.1 are a lot alike doing some things, but some things are different.

    He wants to put a flashdrive icon on the desktop instead of going the long way. Is there any shorter way to see whats on the flashdrive in Windows 7? Thanks Chuck

    Windows Explorer is the way to view files on a flash drive.
    Create a shortcut on the Desktop by right clicking in a space on the Desktop and selecting New > Shortcut.
    Add this text to the location field: explorer.exe D:
    Where "D:" is the flash drive letter.

    cheers, Paul

    Thank You Paul, I just wasn't sure how to do that. Some things are the same with windows 7 or 8 but some aren't, as you no. Thanks, Chuck

    Sorry so many questions.
