Windows 10 – Open Explorer to This PC


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.

This PC

Close and re-open Explorer.
