I installed TweakUI. I want to know what registry key we manually change to
get the "Show All Drive Letters Before Label", under the "My Computer\Drive
Letters" branch. We want to apply this on other computers w/o installing
TweakUI. Please let me know.

Hi Woodstok,

"ShowDriveLettersFirst" registry value:

The computer description appears before the computer name in Windows XP: =

NOVELL: Display of Drive Letters in Drop Down Boxes (NetWare Cool =
Solutions):=20

FYI: This function of Tweak UI is mis-mapped. Posted earlier by Keith =

For the TweakUI portion of your dilemma, the labels for the options are =
incorrect. The associated
registry value is under:


"HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Exp lorer"and is a value =
named "ShowDriveLettersFirst". Possible values are:


0 =3D Default display - drive letters after description
1 =3D Network drive letters first, Local drive letters after
2 =3D Descriptions only, no drive letters displayed
4 =3D Drive letters before description


In TweakUI, the four options displayed are not associated with their =
correct values. The first
option is a match, but for "Show all drive letters before", tweakUI is =
setting the value to 2 rather
than 4; for "Network before/Local after", the value is being set to 2 =
rather than 1; and for "Never
show", the value is being set to 4 rather than 2. To summarize (assuming =
options are numbered 1
thru 4):
If you want
Option# Select:
1 1
2 4
3 2
4 3
