Display the Drive Letter Before The Drive Name in Explorer.




By default, Windows Explorer will show drive letter appear first, or make it behave differently for local drives and network drives. This change applies to all users on the computer.

open the Registry Editor and navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer.
Find the values called ShowDriveLetterFirst.

The possible values are:
0 = Default Display; drive letter after description
1 = Network Drive letter first, local drive letters after
2 = Description only, no drive letters displayed.
4 = Drive letters before description.

About This Blog

The Windows Registry is a database which stores settings and options for Microsoft Windows operating systems. It contains normally information and settings for hardware, operating system software, most non-operating system software, and per-user settings. Registry is used to optimize the security, enhance the functionality, modify the functioning of any software OR settings and many more.

In this blog I have tried to collect all the tweaks and hacks available on various website. I have tested many of these hacks before posting but still I would suggest you to take backup of your registry before trying any of these tweaks and if anything goes wrong while trying these hacks I or this blog will not be held responsible.
