    Windows Explorer after update

    After having 1607 installed (automatic no problem) I went to Windows Explorer to find that none of my drives was listed. I discovered that by clicking this computer all of the drives are shown. I have been told that this is a feature of the new update. Why? What was broken? Why did this need fixing? What advantage is this to me, or for that matter, anyone else? Just asking.

    No one uses Windows Explorer to browse drives or say, explore Windows.

    Says no one, ever!

    I don't mean any offense, but the fact that I posted the question proves that you are incorrect.

    Thank you for your attempt to help me. Please excuse my ineptitude. It took forever to figure out how to get a screenshot, then I was unable to figure out how to get it in the reply. Thanks again.

    To post a screenshot click the picture icon (when you hover on the icon the tool tip is "Insert Image") in the toolbar. Click "From Computer" and then the "Browse" button. Find the image and select it.

    I have tried several times over two days and none of your suggestions work for me. Thank you for your efforts.

    What I can't see from your screen shot is the entry "This PC" clicking that shows all drives and the size of each. Before each drive such as C drive was shown with a list of the files on that drive. In the same manner that "One Drive" is shown on yours. I see now that I can get that by clicking on the drive in "This PC". I know that now. When this started I didn't understand that. I still believe the old way was better. I don't see that the change was necessary or an improvement. Thanks for your response anyway.

    If you prefer to open File Explorer to the "This PC" view, did you try looking at the "View" tab -> Options -> "Change folder and view options"? That should open a new dialogue window. In this window, be on the "General" tab, and on the top line you would see a selection box for "Open File Explorer to:", which on mine lets me select either 'Quick Access' or 'This PC'. My current setting is 'Quick Access,' I've not made up my mind if I prefer that view or 'This PC' as my default yet.

    If I'm not being clear, look at this URI link: https://www.tekrevue.com/tip/configu...-this-pc-view/
