How to get HDD's displayed on the taskbar in alphabetical order?

Intel Core i7 CPU [email protected] 3.81GHz 12Gb RAM ATI Radeon HD 5770 Monitor 1 - BenQ2400W (Landscape) Monitor 2 - BenQ2400W (Portrait) Win 7 Pro 64bit: Epson Stylus Photo R1900.

I have a large number of hard drives on my system. How can I get the taskbar to display them in alphabetical order? Some are internal drives, and some external. The external drives are not always powered up so the order will change depending on whether the externals are powered up or not.

All of the articles I have found on t'interweb talk about the start menu order which is not what I want.

Thanks a lot.

If you right click on the task bar/Toolbars/new Toolbar sellect computer, on the taskbar you will find Computer, click on the >> and you will have a list of drives.

With all plugged in assign each a drive letter of your choice using Disk management (leaving gaps if necessary for card reader slots).

Next time you reboot or plug in a drive it should keep the same drive letter. (USB drives must always be plugged into the same slot as when the drive letter was assigned.

I have a drive I have assigned as P: (Verbatim)

Internal drives C - H with G as DVD drive with even without drives I J K l M switch on if I power up the Verbatim drive it will always be assigned the letter P
