For those who don’t know, this Navigation Pane is sidebar which is on the left side of File Explorer, since the previous Windows era, the Navigation Pane is an important part of File Explorer because with this feature, users can quickly navigate to other folders directly.

This PC Now Focuses On Local Drive
Starting with this version, This PC will no longer show folders like desktop, downloads, documents, and others and will now focus on local drive that the user has.
If you have a lot storage drives on your device, everything will now look neat on This PC and you can access it easily without having to mix with other public folders.
OneDrive Improvements in File Explorer
Apart from This PC, which will now focus more on local drive, OneDrive is also now getting an upgrade where OneDrive is now more integrated with File Explorer. Once you’ve logged into your OneDrive account, OneDrive in the Navigation Pane will display username Your OneDrive Cloud.
Home For Quick Access, Favorites and Recent Files
