Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Making File Explorer open to this PC, part of Windows 10 Tips and Tricks.
- Here in Windows 10,…File Explorer has gone through some minor changes…and one of them is you no longer see Favorites…showing up as an option,…but rather Quick Access.…And the Quick Access setting can be customized.…We're going to take a look at it now.…If you have File Explorer on the task bar,…just give it a click to launch File Explorer.…Otherwise, you can go into the search field here…and start to type in "File Explorer".…You'll find it there.…Once it launches, though,…you should see that the default,…unless you've changed it,…is to display something called "Quick Access."…This means folders you've visited frequently,…as well as files you've worked with recently…so you can go back to them quickly.…
Not bad.…But if you find yourself constantly going back to This PC…and navigating through your own computer,…you may want to change the default.…And if fact, if you don't use the Quick Access options,…you can turn those off as well.…We do it right from within File Explorer…by clicking the View tab.…Next, we'll click the Options button…
