I have tried to...

I have tried to download an operators manual (I have the Quick Start info) but i can't find a web site to download the Portable USB Hard Drives Canvio Basics HDTB310XK3AA manual. All I really need is to get to the Index for the hard drive so I can communicate with it. How do I get there?

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand, model, and Operating System (OS) of your computer?

Lenovo Thinkpad Edge and Windows 10

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your ThinkPad?

I plugged in the hard drive, rebooted the computer, then, next to the windows symbol at the lower left of the screen, in Type here to search, I entered Toshiba hard drive.

I'm trying to access the MENU for my new hard drive so I can communicate with it.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Rather than remotely connecting for the $39, I'd like to use my free 7 day trial. Just explain to me how I can access the MENU for the hard drive.
Laptop technician: JustinDS, Computer Specialist replied 6 months ago
I believe I know what you mean now. You can access the hard drive through Windows File Explorer. I can help walk you through this.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
OK. How do I split my screen so I can read your instructions while viewing File Explorer?
Laptop technician: JustinDS, Computer Specialist replied 6 months ago
In Windows 10 by the Start button in the bottom left corner of screen there is a small folder icon. Do you see that?

You should be able to drag the window to one side and resize them by dragging the edges of the window.

NO. Is it in the Windows icon?
Laptop technician: JustinDS, Computer Specialist replied 6 months ago
It's right by the Windows icon to the right of it. Let me see if I can get a picture of what it looks like.

I don't see your picture yet.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
On my PC, just to the right of the Windows Icon is the "Type here to search' box.
Laptop technician: JustinDS, Computer Specialist replied 6 months ago

Right to the right of that about an inch should be the tan icon.
