    Hi--
       I was just forced to borrow money from my daughter to buy a new computer, thanks to a power surge that blew right past my surge protector, and fried the computer's power supply.

      The new machine is Windows 10; I was accustomed to Windows XP Pro.

    I am having trouble finding things, specifically, the list of drives that I used to access via the "my computer" folder.  That does not exist on this machine, and I can't figure out how to see the main drive, and any external/removable drives to see if they are working/reading the disc, etc...or view the contents.

    Where do I look to find this?  I've been all through 'settings' and 'system' and can't find it. 

    Any help much appreciated.

      Hi DzyMsLizzy, if you click the Windows logo in the lower left corner on the taskbar, and then File Explorer, you should be able to get to your drives from there.  If they don't all show up on the left column of the File Explorer, you can click "This PC" from the column, which is basically the Windows 10 equivalent of My Computer.

    Right-clicking that logo will give you even more commands.
