Default Removable USB drive

I have added a removable 4GB USB drive to my system. It beams in as Drive
F:, but it won't appear under MyComputer. I have to use the Run command to
access the drive. How can I get it to appear in MyComputer?

How very odd. Is it formatted? I guess it must be if you can access it
using Run. What does the Device Manager have to say? Is it possible that
you have used TweakUI and have hidden drive F in Windows Explorer?

That got it! TweakUI was hiding it.

Thanks!
