    File Explorer - I don't understand it anymore


    File Explorer - I don't understand it anymore 9d81f076-6ec6-4fe2-b305-6b4646e22b35?upload=true.jpg

    That's my File Explorer layout.

    This is a new computer Dell XPS 8930. This machine has 2 drives: OS C: contains the operating system on a 256 GB SSD, and DATA D: is the 2TB harddrive.

    So far so good.

    Then there is something in File Explorer called "This PC" and it has directories underneath it, such as "Documents". P

    "Pictures", etc.

    When I tried to copy my data from my old machine, via external USB disks, to those directories under "This PC" , that didn't work.

    So I created my own directories under DATA D: and I transferred my data there. I am ignoring the directories under "This PC".


    I can work this way, but it is obviously not the way Microsoft intended this to go.

    Any idea what I should have done, or can still do?

    :)

  3. Missing iexplorer.exe in the Window explorer File

    -

    Just to verify, before I toss out other suggestions.

    Have Cortana find

    Turn Windows features on or off.

    If Internet Explorer is listed check it and click OK.

    See if you can create shortcuts and use IE

    1. Internet Explorer is in the list and is checked?

    2. You do not have iexplore or iexplore.exe files in either of these folders?

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer"

    "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer"
