Did a windows update cause the drivers and removable devices to?

Be like here: How to Separate ?Devices and Drives? Section in Windows 8.1 Explorer ?This PC?? - AskVG

I think I'm pretty sure it wasn't like that on my windows 7 pc before I did some updates.

Or I may be mistaken and this is not happening. I think I solved it.
