    Windows 10 Mapped Drives Missing from Desktop


    Hello, I have a weird issue where the mapped drives on the Desktop go missing in Windows 10 every so often. I've tried UNC paths and they stay on the desktop. The network isn't dropping so I can't see why these would be getting removed. Anyway to stop or prevent this occuring?

    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

    Windows 10 Mapped Drives Missing from Desktop

    Work Mapped drives not working at home.


    Hello All.

    I have a user at work that has a laptop as her main work use (docking station at work, then takes it home to work at home).
    we have a list of mapped network drives that we use here, including a personal drive.

    however when this user gets home or off the network, the personal drive seems to become inactive/go missing.

    there are no USB drives that interfere with the network drives, and i am lost looking for solutions.

    any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks.
