How do I view the name or label of a drive?
Updated: 04/01/2018 by Computer Hope
Below are the steps on how you can view the label (name) of a drive on your computer.
- Press the Windows Key, type My Computer, and then press Enter.
- In My Computer (This PC for Windows 8 and up), each drive name precedes the drive letter. For example, in the image below, Primary Drive is the name of the C: drive.
Tip: You can right-click a drive icon and select Properties to display as well as change its name.
MS-DOS and Windows command line users
- Change to the drive letter you want to change.
- Once you're in the drive, type label, and press Enter.
