    Brink, doing that in My Computer folder and greyed out. At least I still have the disk space usage bar still there which was the original problem.

    Just greyed out Apply to Folders option in My Computer. I guess it is not an option in My Computer folder. It does appear in other folders as an option. I think I've jumped the rails on this.

    All seems good.

    Yeah, it would need to be from a folder location instead of from Computer/This PC.

    Well the bat file linked to earlier (reset default views) worked, but also had the effect of scrambling my desktop icons every time I reboot. Luckily found a reg edit fix for that: Fix Windows 10 does not save the Desktop icon position and layout - Winaero
