OneDrive is now part of File Explorer. For a quick primer on how it works in Windows 10, check out OneDrive on your PC.
When File Explorer opens, you’ll land in Quick access. Your frequently used folders and recently used files are listed there, so you won’t have to dig through a series of folders to find them. You can also pin your favorite folders to Quick access to keep them close at hand. For more info, see Pin, remove, and customize in Quick access.
You can use apps to share files and photos right from File Explorer. Select the files you want to share, go to the Share tab, select the Share button, and then choose an app. For more info on sharing options, see Share files in File Explorer.
If something shows up in Quick access that you don’t want to see there again, right-click it and select Remove from Quick access. It won’t show up there anymore, even if you use it every day.
To turn off recent files or frequent folders, go to the View tab, and then select Options. In the Privacy section, clear the check boxes and select Apply. Now Quick access will only show your pinned folders. (If you turn them back on, items you previously removed from Quick access might show up again.)
If you’d rather have File Explorer open to This PC, go to the View tab and then select Options. In the Open File Explorer to list, select This PC, and then Apply.
