You can, if you wish to, display your favorite file or its shortcuts directly in the This PC folder on Windows 11/10/8 or the (My) Computer folder of Windows 7/Vista. In this post, we will show you how to do it.
Display any file, folder, program in This PC folder
To do so, open Windows File Explorer and through Organize > Folder Options, allow the showing of Hidden & also System files & folders.
Next, navigate to the following folder:
Place the files or the shortcuts to the files in this folder.
It’s so simple. No need to hack the registry!
Open This PC folder and you will be able to see them.
If you have set it to sort by None or Name that is how you will see it. But if you have set it to sort by Type, you will see them placed under Network Location.
For those who need to access select files fast, this is yet another way to do it easily.
Gopal a high school student from India, currently studying in the US, for the last 1 year, came up with this bright yet simple idea and shared it with me over Facebook.
