By default Windows 10 opens Explorer to the Quick access view. This view highlights Frequent folders and Recent files.
I much prefer the This PC view which shows Folders and Devices and drives.
This is how to make This PC the default view:
- Open Explorer and click the View menu and then the Options button *
- Set the Open File Explorer to drop down menu to This PC and then click Ok.
* If you click the lower half of the options button you will also need to click Change folder and search options.
Close and re-open Explorer.
