If you prefer to see the drive letters of a particular drive before its label in Windows, there is a simple registry hack for it. These are the steps to perform:
- Launch regedit (as an administrator)
- Locate the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer
- Create a new DWORD value called ShowDriveLettersFirst
- Enter one of the following numbers as the value:
0 – Default. Drive letters are displayed after the drive description.
1 – Show local drive letters after description and network drive letters before the drive name.
2 – Display no drive letter at all
4 – Show all drive letters before the drive names
