Not sure when it first showed up, presumably, last update, but I just noticed today. Any way to "fix" this? I'd also love, if possible, to remove the network link. Running current ExplorerPatcher.

Thanks, as always, for reading,

Russell

Right-clicking the My PC icon the Properties should bring up the System/About page, same as on the right-click of the Start button. Check the second instance to check if it's identical.

Not on Win11 now but on Win10 right-click of the Network item in the left pane offers Delete as a choice.

Downside in customization of Windows is the possibility that a Version Upgrade and maybe Build update will bring things back to default.

Identical, yes. Right click delete is an option, but, does not have any impact (dialog pops up, say OK, no result).

In file explorer, click on view-click navigation pane, uncheck network.
I see This PC only once. Under Navigation Pane I have only Navigation Pane, Show this PC and Show network checked.
