  1. Cannot Show Sub Menu when I Right Click over a Drive through File Explorer


    Today I tried to check the disk sapce usage on one of my drives. I right clicked over the drive letter on 'File Explorer' but no sub-menu showed up. The whole desktop screen was refreshed, or something like restarted. I couldn't open the sub-menu for choosing the 'Properties' entry. I tried all the drives and they behaved in the same way.


    My Win 10 was installed with '2020-10 Cumulative update for Windows 10 Version 2004 for x64-based systems KB4579311' and '2020-10 Cumulative update for .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.8 for Windows 10 Version 2004 for x64 KB4578968.

    :)
     

  2. File Explorer- no drive letters are listed.

    The File Explorer in Windows 10, shows the Frequent folders list and Recent files list by default. You can view the drives by clicking on This PC tab on the left site of the File Explorer. But if you wish the File Explorer
    to open This PC showing drives list by default, then follow these steps:

    1. In Windows 10, open a new File Explorer window and click the View tab from the ribbon toolbar.

    2. In the View tab, find and click on Options, listed by default on the far right side of the ribbon.

    3. In the Folder Options window, make sure you’re on the General tab and then find the drop-down box labeled Open File Explorer To. Click the drop-down menu and select This PC. Click OK to
    save your changes and close the window. Now your File Explorer opens to Drives list by default.

    Hope this helps!

    Feature suggestion: Add right-click menu

    Suggestion: Please add a Windows 7 Jump-List and/or right-click menu to the GPU-Z icon in the Windows taskbar. Possible menus in it would be "Exit" and "About GPU-Z...".
    Maybe also "Switch to tab 1/Switch to tab 2/Switch to videocard 1/Switch to videocard 2" too.
    Examples of programs that have such menus are ICQ, Skype, AIM.

    NOTE: It seems for a right-click menu, Windows 7 is not needed - it works on WinXP and Vista too.
    But even a Windows 7 Jump-list may be good enough.
    What do you think?

    'Open in new window' right-click menu option for File Explorer


    I just submitted this suggestion on Windows Uservoice:

    The idea: the right-click menu for folders in File Explorer has an option called 'Open in new window', which opens that folder in a new File Explorer window. Very useful for copying and moving things, and opening destination folders without accessing the start menu a second time.
