    Network drive not showing in elevated apps


    Hi everybody,

    I am using W10 Home and I have just done a clean install and I am in the process of customizing the system to my needs.

    The problem I step into is this:
    I connected a new network drive from within Windows Explorer and if I open:
    - Command prompt window: Drive exist and it is listed by NET USE
    - Admin command prompt window: Drive DOESN'T exist and it is NOT listed by NET USE

    I also use FreeCommander. When I launch it the UAC asks for my confirmation and the network drive doesn't show either.

    I know it sounds stupid but I can't figure out what happens... *Confused

    Thanks!

  4. Can't show network drives?

    Network card not showing

    Hi,



    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.



    In order to help you better, could you please confirm a couple of things




    • Are you using router?

    • Are you getting any error message?


    Is you are using router then I suggest you to reset the router and check if the issue persist.

    Also I suggest you to update the Network Adapter driver. Here is the steps:


    • Press Windows+X key on your desktop and select
      Device Manager.

    • Locate Network drivers, expand, right click and click
      on Update.

      Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.
