  1. Windows 10 file system layout


    I'm looking to go to a new Windows 10 PC, and changing from a Windows 7 PC.

    If I backup the "My Documents" folder and all files and folders within, is there a similar file system
    under Windows 10, ie same structure I can dump directly to, or have they changed things and I'll
    have a bit more messing about to do?

    Thanks

    :)

    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

    Problem with Windows 10 File Explorer View Layout box

    Hi Bruce,

    A corrupted system files is one of the possible reasons why you are having issues with with the View Layout box on the File Explorer. For us to assist you better, kindly answer the questions below:

    • Have you made any changes to your computer prior to this issue?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?
    • Which version and OS build number of Windows 10 is currently installed? To check, press the
      Windows key, type winver, and press the
      Enter
      key.
    • Do you have a third-party security software installed?

    Meanwhile, I would suggest that you run the System File Checker
    tool and the Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool to scan and correct any issues. System File Checker (SFC) is a built-in tool in the operating system. SFC checks for system file corruption. Deployment Image Servicing and Management
    (DISM) is a command-line tool that can be used to service a Windows image or to prepare a Windows Preinstallation Environment image. Kindly follow the steps in this

    Forum Article
    that was posted by ZigZag3143 (MS-MVP) to perform SFC and DISM.

    We'll be looking forward to your reply.

    Windows 10 file system layout

    Windows 10 installation file system

    Hello I installed windows 10 on pendrive 3,75 gb with ntfs system file using ultraISO. I read on internet that it is required to use fat32 if you have uefi mobo which I do (msi b85m-g43). So far my system is working just fine except after boot screen the background doesnt dissapear, insted windows 10 loading circle on little black background appears and then it goes to welcome screen. Everythings else is fine so far. May this problem be caused by file system ? Or could it done any other problems I dont see?

    Well Nevermind. It seems like program formatted pendrive to fat32 and I didnt see it.
