Using Windows 10 on a Dell Latitude. I have a PNY flash drive plugged into a USB port.

It's 3.0 but should be backward compatible to any USB port, right?

I can see it in the Settings.

But I don't see it in File Explorer.

Yes USB 3 is backwards compatible. Go into Disk Management and format the flash drive.
