Change the label of any hard disk, floppy disk, or removable media.
Command Prompt →
Every disk has a label, the name shown in Explorer next to the drive
letter (except for floppies). To change the label for any disk,
right-click on its icon in Explorer (or the My Computer window),
select Properties, and type a new name in the unlabeled field at the
top of the properties window. The Label tool duplicates this
functionality from the command line. For example, to change the label
label c: shoebox
If you omit
label, you will be prompted to
enter a new label. If you omit
label will use the current drive.
A disk’s label has no effect on the operation of the disk; for hard disks, it’s purely decorative. For CDs and other removable media, it’s used to quickly identify what’s in the drive.
