Assigning Letters To A Drive In Windows 10

Anytime you insert your drive into your Windows 10 computer, Windows will automatically assign a letter to the drive as the drive identifier. The letter assign to a drive is not a permanent identifier of the drive except you make it so.

To make a letter a permanent letter that is assigning to a storage drive of yours in Windows 10, do the following:

  • Insert the drive into your computer.
  • When it has shown, hit Windows key + X.
  • This will open the Power User Menu, from this menu select Disk Management.
  • When the Disk Management opens, right-click on the drive you want to assign a permanent letter to, and then select Change Drive Letter and Paths...
  • When the Change Drive Letter and Paths dialog box opens, click on the Change button.
  • When done, another dialog box will open. When it does, you will be shown the available letter that have not been permanently assign to a drive, select the one you want to assign to the drive from the list and click the OK button.
 It is as simple as that.

Note though that you will not be able to assign the letter C to any drive neither will you be able to change it.

Also, know that this setting is not stored on the drive but it is a Windows settings and thus if you insert the disk to another computer, then Windows will automatically assign a new letter to it in most cases.
