      This is not useful if you want to target a specific folder and not a whole drive…

    2. It’s my job. Thank u so much Lueke.

    3. I totally love you!
      You are smarter than Microsoft!
      O.K. me – I have a Lumia 950XL powered with Windows 10 and my new Laptop also holds Windows 10. I’m having trouble. I’m an old guy who doesn’t know technology. That’s why I started with that comment. You have already helped me. I’m trying to link my Notebook on my phone to the Notebook 2016 on my Laptop. I think if I read more from you I will figure it out.
      I give you this info – Microsoft does not know about this – I may be the only person “in the world” – now you – spread the word. I was punching buttons when I first got the phone. Somehow, I found the flashlight. I thought it was great and said that I had to remember where it was. I didn’t. Asked Microsoft – they sent the manual that I had already read – and said that there is no flashlight on my phone except for the flash on my camera. Ha! Ask Cortana to turn the flashlight ON. When you’re done tell her to turn is OFF. You can tell everyone what a hero I am.
      I will definitely see you again. You seem to have the best info – the way it makes sense – that I have found.
      I love you.
