Answered by Jarrod Smith

To unhide the D drive in Windows 10, you can follow these steps:

1. Open File Explorer: You can do this by clicking on the folder icon on the taskbar or by pressing the Windows key + E on your keyboard.

2. Go to the “View” tab: Once you have File Explorer open, you’ll see a menu bar at the top. Click on the “View” tab to access the various options related to how files and folders are displayed.

3. Open “Options”: In the “View” tab, you’ll find a button labeled “Options” on the right-hand side. Click on it to open the Folder Options dialog box.

4. Change folder and search options: In the Folder Options dialog box, click on the “Change folder and search options” link. This will open another dialog box with additional settings.

5. Select the “View” tab: In the Folder Options dialog box, you’ll see several tabs at the top. Click on the “View” tab to access the advanced settings for folder and file display.

6. Show hidden files, folders, and drives: Scroll down the list of options in the Advanced settings section until you find “Hidden files and folders.” Here, you’ll see three options. Select the one that says “Show hidden files, folders, and drives.”

7. Apply the changes: After selecting the option to show hidden files, folders, and drives, click on the “Apply” button at the bottom right corner of the dialog box. This will save your changes and apply them to File Explorer.

8. Locate the D drive: Now that you have enabled the option to show hidden drives, you should be able to see the D drive in File Explorer. Look for it in the list of drives on the left-hand side.

If you still can’t see the D drive, it’s possible that it may be hidden for another reason. In such cases, it’s worth checking if the drive is properly connected to your computer and functioning correctly. You can also try restarting your computer to see if that resolves the issue.

Remember to be cautious when making changes to folder and file settings. Hidden files and folders are usually hidden for a reason, and modifying or deleting them without proper knowledge can result in system issues. Exercise caution and only make changes if you are sure about what you are doing.
