  1. Problem with File Explorer


    My Dell XPS, running Windows 10 Home, no longer has a D: drive, but when I click on Documents in This PC it tries to find the missing drive. More of an annoyance than a problem, but I can't seem to get File Explorer to change in the Properties tab. It keeps insisting on moving the files from the drive that is no longer there in order to redirect to the C: drive, which of course I can't do. Is there a fix?

    :)
