As the experienced Windows user you are, you are familiar with the Computer view (previously known as ‘My Computer’). This folder contains the (physical or virtual) drives connected to your computer. But that is not all it is capable of displaying.
Should you ever want to customize the content of the Computer Folder, then this is how:
- Open Windows Explorer.
- Click Organize | Folder and Search Options | View tab.
- Check the box to show hidden files, folders and drives, and click OK.
- Now navigate to this folder:
- Create or copy the shortcuts into this folder.
Open the Computer (Winkey+E) and you will see the added shortcuts and files. To group them together underneath Network Locations, set Explorer to sort by Type.
