So my issue is that my D: drive does not appear in the list of drives in the Navigation Pane even though it is just a regular partition like the C: and E: partitions. Even H: and Z: appear and they are an external USB hard drive and CD drive. As you can see in the attached image. The D: drive can be seen in the main window when standing on This PC so it is there.

Any ideas how to make it show up in the Navigation Pane on the left? File Explorer

    I'm not even sure how you got the drive letters to show up like that in that left pane it eh first place...?? If you expand "This PC" in that left-hand pane, does it show all the drives? Feb 14 '17 at 16:18

    Like @Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 it is funny they are all there in the first place. By default, only external drives should appear there. Feb 14 '17 at 17:25
  • Is C: an internal drive? Feb 14 '17 at 17:29
  • Interesting. So I was like "why isn't D: there?" and you guys are saying "Why are C: and E: there?" (C: is the system drive and on an internal hard disk)

  • On the topic of "how'd you get C: to show up?", I have a Windows 10 Enterprise VM that shows the C: drive. Not sure if the "Enterprise" part or the "VM" part is what made the C: drive show up, but might shine some light?
