How to Show all Drives in Windows Explorer

I’ve just got a call from a friend yesterday and he is seeking help about not seeing his memory card. At first he thought that his card was broken but when he inserted it on a different machine it showed. I’ve just told him that there is nothing wrong with his memory or his computer, It’s just that his system, is set to not show empty drives. To solve this I gave him the easy instruction below.

  • Open Windows Explorer, Press ALT key to show the top menu.
  • Click on Tools then Folder Options
  • Click on the View tab
  • Uncheck “Hide empty drives in Computer folder”

folder option How to Show all Drives in Windows Explorer

  • Click on OK and your done.
