Windows 7: Drive sorted BY drive letter

Drive sorted BY drive letter

In Windows XP, in My computer, when ! sorted drives by Name, they are sorted by the drive label. This is the what I would expect.

In Windows 7, when I sorted drives by name, they are sorted by the drive letter. Is there a way to sort by drive label in Windows 7.

Thanks

Hello win123,

You could use the tutorial below to hide the drive letters to have it sorted by the drive name label instead of the drive letter.

Drive Letters - Show or Remove - Vista Forums


If you wanted to keep the driver letters displayed, then you could click on View (menu bar), Group by, and Name to have them sorted by drive name label.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
