Toggle Showing Drive Letters in Explorer
SUMMARY: Configure whether or not you want drive letters appearing in Explorer folders in Windows 7.
By default, Windows 7 shows the letters representing drives in Explorer windows. Your main Windows 7 hard drive is C:, your DVD drive may be D:, and other drives / partitions as well as removable media have their own letters.
Some users would rather hide these letters, relying on the drive's volume name and/or media type. Others may not see these letters and wish to show them again.

2. When the "Folder Options" multi-tabbed dialog box appears, click the "View" tab.
3. Check or uncheck "Show drive letters" as desired.
4. Click "OK" to close the dialog box.
