Get The C: Drive Back In Explorer on Windows 10

Change is a necessary part of life but sometimes it’s just $&#%^! annoying.

Windows 10 implemented a feature for us they thought was going to be awesome (among many others) and that’s “Quick Access” in Windows Explorer. If you love it, great! Get the hell out because this article isn’t for you 🙂 . But if you’re like me and you expect to open it and start navigating the same directory tree you have been since Windows 95 then here’s how to get it back

Step 1 – Open Explorer

Step 2 – Click View / Then Click Options

Step 3 – Change Open Explorer To Option

Change the Open Explorer To option from “Quick Access” to “This PC”
