Can I hide the toolbar with drives completely?

Yes, you can do it, in the Settings window go to “View → Drives → General” and uncheck the options “Show drives as popup button” and “Show drives as button bar”.

Then you can change drive using one of these methods:

Clicking the address bar drive button (option “Show drive button in address bar” must be enabled)
Using the keyboard shortcuts Alt+F1 / Alt+F2
Using the direct keyboard shortcuts for the drive Shift+dive (e.g.: Shif+C, Shift+D…)
File system tree (Alt+T to show/hide the Tree)

Can I exclude some drives from the drive bar?

To exclude the drives from the drive bar open the Settings (F12), go to View →  Drives and type the drive letter(s) into the field under the option “Always exclude drives (e.g. h,m,p)”. Any drives entered in this input field will not be shown in the drive button bar.

Example: If “h,m,p” is entered, the (network) drives “H:”, “M:” and “P” will not be shown in the drive button bar.

Note: Excluded drive(s) will be still available in “This PC” list and through the quick shortcut (Shift+drive letter).

Is it possible to select which folder is opened when the drive is changed?

Go to “Settings (F12) → View → Drives → Select drive” and select one of these options:

  • Root folder – When a drive is changed, the drive’s root folder is opened. Example: After clicking “Drive C”, the folder “C:\” is opened.
  • First suitable folder from the history – When a drive is changed, the folder last open on that drive is opened.
  • Same folder like in the other panel – When a drive is changed, the active panel opens to the folder shown in the other panel if it belongs to the clicked drive. Both panels thereby show the same folder.
