Hello Jeannie,

This is just one of those personal preference settings that I wanted to help make easy to do for those that wanted to.

Ok, I get it now. I was overthinking things again. Thanks!

Btw, I would just cheat and add the drive letter to the beginning of the drive name. Not as elegant as your solution but quick and dirty nonetheless.

The only problem with that is the drive name and letter are separate, so you would have it showing twice.

Was this ever addressed about the drive letters first in disk management? Thanks

Hello Michael,

Sorry, but this only affects Windows Explorer and the Computer window.
