Cant find drive after changing admin password

I am using a MBP, and I just changed the admin password from the default “admin” one.  But now I cant find the drive anywhere!  Not in finder, I cannot find the myworldbook in safari bookmarks either, nor in time machine anymore.

It was perfectly fine straight out of the box, so now I am utterly disgusted with my choice.  What can I do???

Mind you, I am brand new to Macs, so please dumb down any answer.  Thank you so much!!!

scratch that…for some reason, the drive needed to be disconnected from network and then reconnected.

So, your issue is solved?

yes, it is.  I couldnt find a way to delete my original post :frowning:  thanks for checking!

not a problem.
