To easily access the drives, I put This PC / Computer icon right on the desktop. For almost 90% of my work, I open This PC / Computer. This can be also accessed by pressing Windows + R key simultaneously, but it is better to keep on the desktop to easily access it. By, default when you install the Windows 10 on your PC, it shows only Recycle Bin Icon on the desktop.

1. Right click on the free space of desktop and choose personalize.
