Change Explorer's display of drive letters

DriveLettersTool is a tiny portable program which changes the way Explorer displays drive letters.

Launching the program displays four possible options, along with a preview image and a button to make the change.

Option #1 is the Explorer default, where drive letters are always displayed last: Local Disk (C:)

Option #2 shows drive letters before the drive name: (C:) Local Disk.

Option #3 shows only network drive letters before the drive name: (Z:) share (\\server)

Option #4 drops the drive letters entirely, like "Local Disk" and "share\\server".

Clicking the "Apply" button for an option changes Explorer's settings accordingly. The program prompts you to log off and back on (or reboot) to see the change, but restarting Explorer has the same effect.


It's not a program we ever realised we needed, but showing drive letters before the drive name can make more sense in some situations, and DriveLettersTool is an easy way to make it happen.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.80

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.80

• Now you can delete messages you've sent by mistake. Just tap and hold a message you sent in the last 7 minutes, tap delete, and select "Delete for everyone." The message will be deleted for you and everyone in the chat. Requires the latest version of WhatsApp.
• Live location: now you can share your location in real-time with family and friends. Open any chat, tap the + icon > location, and tap "Share Live Location" to get started. 
• Fixed an issue that was preventing some message notifications from appearing on iOS 11.
