    Hide 'Network Locations' in 'My Computer'

    Hello ErraticFox,

    Do you mean to remove "Network" from the navigation pane?

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

    Hope this helps,

    I would also like to know how to do this. I have removed from the Navigation pane, but I still see Network locations in "This PC"
