i used to have a zip disk on drive F of my computer. And to make it easier for the eyes, i just right clicked it and renamed it to "zip Disk (F:)". I however didnt use it anymore and decided to buy a new cdrom. in its place is now the same thing, however it still says zip disk. How do i change it back to default or if i want to, change it to "Cd-Burner (F:)" . ive tried right clicking and it doesnt work. =(

Hmm, is it somewhere in removable storage? Right-click My Computer> Manage> Storage> Removable Storage> find your drive and edit its properties??? I could be way off, just guesswork.

Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management -> Rightclick your CD drive -> Change drive letter and paths -> Change -> Select letter -> Ok -> Ok. :)

Here's a script to do the job

Copy it to notepad, then save it changing the file extension to vbs.




On Error Resume Next

'Declare variables
Dim WSHShell, p, strDrive, strLabel


strDrive = Inputbox("Enter the CD drive letter you wish to change the label for:","Enter Drive Letter","X")

If strDrive = "" Then
WScript.Quit
End If

strLabel = Inputbox("Enter the label for this drive in Explorer","Enter Drive Label","CD Burner")

If strLabel = "" Then
WScript.Quit
End If

'Set the Windows Script Host Shell and assign values to variables
Set WSHShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
p = "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\DriveIcons\"& strDrive & "\DefaultLabel\"
WshShell.RegWrite p, strLabel

Set WshShell = Nothing

MsgBox "You must log off/log on, or reboot for the change to take effect.", 4096,"Finished"

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
