If you insert the pendrive and then go to disk management - setting the assigned letter should be retained for future use, ( I say should as if you use a few different USB devices it may "forget" the allocation but that's Windows). What I do is insert the pendrive right click on the entry in File Manger and give the device a name which shows up nicely in the File manager and other file entry dialogues

You can assign a specific drive letter to a removable device using this tutorial:
Drive Letter - Add, Change, or Remove in Windows

Once your pendrive gets its drive letter assigned this way, it will remember it even though disconnections and reconnections, and always will be named the same way, so once you change it to Z, it will also be named Z every time you connect it afterwards.
