Here is how to view the contents of your drive:

  • If your flash drive is plugged in you should see an icon for it among the available drives. It will be labeled as a Removable Drive. Click on it to open it and view its contents.

  2. The answer was written for an older version of Windows, so the instructions you refer to had to be updated, which is now done. Sorry for the confusion. Thanks for bringing this to our attention!
