Windows 10: DVD RW Drive (E:)

    DVD RW Drive (E:)

    I hope I am proceeding correctly being that I am new to any type of forums. I usually get my limited information by askjeeves. However, of late, I am coming into more issues with windows 10 than anyone can answer yet understand so please be gentle until I get up to speed.
    I would like to know how to change the dvd drives NAME (not letter} in windows 10. Also, how do I get rid of a folder in the MY PC just under OneDrive and just above the C: and D: drives?
    Might I ask that you share the answers in such a way that an average attentive 9 year old could follow. I have run into some real 'techno geeks' who can't seem to understand this after 15 minutes of talk and 4 pages later.
    Fortunately I made a backup of my registry and restore point which I had to do twice now. Lastly, when I put my PC back to the restore point it appears that order of my files in folders lost its alphabetical characteristics.
    I can drag my files to order but when I go to open them they open with a different content of what was next in line.
    A little help on these 3 issues please! What say you?

    Hi, welcome to tenforums.
    I wonder if you could post a screenshot (picture) of your explorer showing the first point? (Use the icon to the left of the video icon above to upload your picture).

    Mine looks like this (ignore the colour - I don't like staring at almost white):

    Not sure what you mean about alpha order of your files.. in explorer, just click on 'Name' in the left column above your file/folder names to order them.. or do you want to apply the same setting to all folders like this:

    The DVD/RW drive doesn't appear in explorer unless sthg is inserted, when the label reflects what's inserted, so I'm unsure what you want to do there... change the DVD RW Drive legend, assuming that's what you see?
