How to Find My C Drive

Windows, by default, creates a variety of icons that represent devices on a PC. There are icons that represent printers, modems and even Flash drives. These icons reside in multiple locations including folders, menus and the Windows task bar. Because there are so many icons, it is sometimes difficult to remember where a particular icon is. If you cannot find your “C” drive, there are several places that you can look.
