    Hello Windows1987, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    The tutorial below should be able to help you to add "Network" back to your navigation pane.

    Network - Add or Remove from Navigation Pane in Windows 8 Explorer

    If those are shortcuts in your last screenshot, then it may be the shortcut arrow is messed up. If so, then using the tutorial below to restore the default shortcut arrow should help.

    Hope this helps,
