UNC hides drive letter

February 7, 2007 at 06:03:26
Specs: Linux, AMD 2GB

In Windows Explorer and some application dialogs the UNC comes before the drive letter making it sometimes impossible to see the drive letter.

Current style:
charlie on nwsrv1\Data\Department\Users\ (H:)

Wanted style
H: (nwsrv1\Data\Department\Users\charlie)

How to swap the UNC and drive letter or hide the UNC ?

Create a new text file somename.reg.
Open this file in NOTEPAD.
Copy the following lines and past it in your file.

# ----- Start of REG-file -----
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer]
"ShowDriveLettersFirst"=dword:00000004
# ----- End of REG-file -----

Save the file to somewhere on your harddisc.
Doubleclick on that file to import the registry settings.
Maybe, you have to restart your computer, to take effect.

Works great !!!
