Where’s my computer?

While this information will prove to be more useful for Windows 8 users, it is also relevant to those using Windows 7.

There are times when you need to access files directly on your computer.  Windows XP called it My Computer, but Windows 7 and Windows 8 just call it Computer.

In Windows 7, you can access Computer from the start menu, but Windows 8 no longer has a start menu.  The answer is to place a shortcut on your desktop.  Here’s how it’s done.

  • Right-click in an empty spot on your desktop, and click Personalize.

  • Click Change Desktop Icons.

  • Click Computer so that there is a check mark in the box in front of it, and click OK.
