List,

 

How do I see the list of drives on a Windows 10 operating system?  In Windows 7, I opened up “Computer” and found the list of drives i.e. removable drives etc.  Thanks in advance-

Mark

I have my system set to open “this pc” when I press windows key + e. Very quick and convenient.

I have an icon for “this PC” on my computer, and once there, I arrow down to my list of drives which is at the bottom of the listview.  Once there, I right arrow to the drive I want to access.

 

I have instructions here somewhere for putting the “this PC” icon on the desktop if you want them.  They are not self evident from the start.

What used to be Computer/My Computer has been "This PC" in File Explorer since the advent of Windows 8.  If you expand "This PC" in the folder tree view in File Explorer (formerly Windows Explorer) you'll see the list you're expecting to see.  The details regarding the exact type of drive are, of course, over in the file list area.

Try windowsKey+e for Explorer.

First letter navigation works here, so if you have drives that are named, you can jump to them with the first letter.

Otherwise, arrow down until you find the drive you want.

On my system, if I press o, I land on the C drive.  It is labeled OSC by default for me.
