Second attempt at a question: When I view This PC in Windows 11, I want the Folders above "Devices and drives" to show my user folders from my C drive. Instead the Folders displayed are OneDrive folders. How can I control what Folders show above the line "Devices and drives" ?

Assuming that you are using File Explorer, have you explored all the options under the 3-dot hamburger menu?

Thanks, I'm looking at them now. I'm not sue which option would allow me to select the Folders I want to show under "Folders" and above "Devices and Drives". Can you explain?

Why not create a desktop shortcut to "This PC"?
Click on Start, Settings, Personalisation, after click on Themes and then on Desktop icon settings, tick the Computer option and then Apply and OK.
Now you have a direct link to the folders you want directly from the desktop.

This looks like a better solution than I was hoping for. I'm going to try this after work today. Thank you.

How do I make a screen shot using Paint. I opened Paint but I don't see how to make a screen shot and I don't know what screen to capture.

Here is your post. I made this screen shot using the Snipping Tool.

Use the Print Screen button on the keyboard then use the paste option in paint.
