I used PC's for years. about 5-6 years ago I switdhed to Apple. I couldn't get the hang of the Apple file system so last year I bought a PC so I could find my files. Well Microsoft seemed to one-up Apple. I can't find a file to save my life.

I'm trying to understand the file naming system. C:\something\otherthing\thisplace. That doesn't seem to work on windows 10. I search for a file, I get the address, I then try to access that file and it's not there
