  3. 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!

    Files and folders not displayed in File Explorer

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused.

    I see that you are missing some folders and files are missing.

    Please follow the below steps and see if you can view the files or folders,

    1. Type File Explorer options in the
    Search Bar and then Enter.

    2. Click on the View Tab and then check the
    Show hidden files folders and drives.

    3. Click on Apply and then
    Ok.


    4. Now check for the missing files and folders.

    I would suggest you to check the size of the complete files on laptop and then on Desktop.

    Change the driver letter on the desktop and check if that is the problem.

    Please follow the below steps for the same,

    1. Click on Windows key + R for
    Run.


    2. Type diskmgmt.msc and then
    Enter.


    3. Right-click the drive that you want to change, and then click
    Change Drive Letter and Paths.

    Do one of the following:

      • To assign a drive letter if one has not already been assigned, click
        Add
        , click the letter that you want to use, and then click OK.
      • To change a drive letter, click Change,click Assign the following drive letter, click the letter that you want to use, and then click
        OK.
      • To remove a drive letter, click Remove,and then click
        Yes
        to confirm that you want to remove it.
    Note:

    • Some programs make references to specific drive letters. If you change a drive letter, these programs might not work correctly.
    • If you get an error, the drive you are trying to change might be in use. Close any program or window that is using the drive and try again.

    Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance, we’ll be glad to assist you.
