Show Drive Letters First in Windows 7
In XP and Vista following registry fix made the drive letter of all drives appear first, in front of the drive label:
Unfortunately this setting doesn't seem to work any longer in Win7's Explorer, and the drive letters remain at the end.
Does anybody know of a working method?

Sorry guys, for misleading you in my 1st message, the mentioned registry fix does work in Windows 7, too.
I had made a mistake earlier by adding the fix "ShowDriveLettersFirst"=dword:00000004 by error manually under HKEY_CURRENT_USER instead of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
I now deleted the wrong entry from HKEY_CURRENT_USER and made the fix correctly by merging a little .reg file with following contents:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Copy & paste into Notepad and rename it a .reg file. It works!
