Also, Windows key > type "windows explorer" and press enter. You should not have to type more than "wi" actually.

What I want to see when the Computer is clicked on is what I see when Windows Explorer is launched. Another word, I want to see on the left navigation pane, all drives under Computer. Is this possible?

That is exactly what comes up when you click "Computer". Windows Explorer is launched and all drives are listed under "Computer" in the left pane. Perhaps a screen shot of what you mean?

Win key + e, at least for me it always opens Explorer at the drive selections.

Hello Churin,

I believe this is what you are wanting below, but you should also be able to expand Computer in the Navigation Pane and close the window. Everytime you open Windows Explorer, Computer should be expanded as it was last closed as showing all of your drives.

Navigation Pane - Show All Folders

Hope this helps,
Shawn
