How to Get a WD Passport SSD to show up in Windows

I have a WD Passport SSD with wifi and it is connected to the laptop (running Windows 10 on a MacBook Pro via Bootcamp) but I can only see the drive in Network - I cannot see it in Windows Explorer.

Now the web view displays a graphic indicating the aggregate of files by type.  Cannot see the actual files, just this graphic.

Any ideas on how to have this work like a conventional drive?

You'd need to map it to a network drive.

Navigate to the IP address of the drive and then map it that way. Further model details would help as well so I can go read the manual.

Is it connected per cable or per WLAN?

It is powered on and connected via a USB cable to the laptop which is running Windows via BootCamp on a MacBook Pro

It is a My Passport Wireless SSD from Western Digital.  There are no other markings on the drive.
