  2. Duplicate drive listed in explorer.

    I had read some good tutorials on how to remove unwanted items from the side explorer navigation pane and was interested if someone knows how to remove a duplicate of a drive showing up?

    Here is what I am dealing with:

    The duplicate listing of Drive F: which is a USB Flash drive is not necessary and I would like to remove one of them.

    Any ideas?

    EDIT:

    I think I found it here: Add or Remove Duplicate Drives in Navigation Pane in Windows 10

    I'll give it a go and find out.

    It appears that the drives listed under "This PC" are not considered duplicate listings and the reg file does not have any effect on those listings.

    So imperially or practically, I guess I don't really have a duplicate listing of the drive unless the branch of "This PC" is expanded.

    I just had to stop the explorer process and restart it, and it took!

    Duplicate drives in Windows Explorer

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
