I am having a network related issue with my Windows 7 operating system. I would like to disconnect a network drive. Where in the interface should I go to disconnect a network drive?

Windows 10 makes it really pretty easy to disconnect a network drive. At the same time, it also makes mapping a new network drive fairly easy. Okay, so here's what you do to disconnect a network drive (or unmap, they both basically mean the same thing):

Open This PC. You can also open the Explorer or any folder whatsoever and in the left-hand side, you are sure to find the "This PC" link. Here, check the ribbon. Ribbon is the horizontal menu part that comes right after the window's name (along with the close, minimize, etc. buttons). The ribbon might be minimized, in which case it will be a bar having three items: File, Computer, and View. If it's maximized, you can see additional options under each tab.

Either way, go to the Computer tab on this bar or ribbon. There, you will find a "Map network drive" button along with a down-arrow. Do NOT click on the icon of the disk/drive. Click on the down-arrow or the text (it's the same link). Now, click on "Disconnect network drive". This opens the Disconnect Network Drives window. Here, you will find a handy list of all your network drives. The one you want to disconnect will also be here. Click on it once to choose it and then click OK at the bottom-right of the window.

And ... that is all you need to do to disconnect a network drive from your system!

Some design is good, some design is bad, and yet some design is just full retard Comic Sans with a rainbow gradient on it.
