Updated: Dec 2, 2020

To make identifying your USB stick or hard drives easier you can rename them.

Eg: Backup - Pics 2020 - Xmas2020 - My Stuff - Purple USB and so on





1 / Open This PC




2 / Select the drive you want to rename (Single Left Click)


3 / Click Computer





4 / Click Rename

This will highlight the drive rename box and allow you to change its name





5 / Name the drive as required

eg: Purple, My stuff, Xmas 2020


6 / Once you have renamed the drive click on a blank part of the screen,

your drive is now named as you need




Right Click Method


Instead of selecting the drive with a single click (Step 2 above)

"Right" click the drive and then left click rename


Then perform steps 5 and 6 as above





There are other ways to rename a drive using either command prompt, drive manager or the drive properties screen, the two options above should be easyest
