Working with the Computer folder
From the Computer folder, you can access locations such as hard disks, CD or DVD drives, and removable media. You can also access other devices that might be connected to your computer, such as external hard drives and USB flash drives.
A common reason to open the Computer folder is to view the available space on your hard disks and removable media.
If you right-click an item in the Computer folder, you can perform tasks such as ejecting a CD or DVD, viewing the properties of a hard disk, and formatting a disk.
