How to Add, Change, or Remove a Drive Letter in Windows 7

Through Disk Management
1. Open the Start Menu, then right click on the Computer button (dark right side) and click on Manage.
A) Go to step 3.
OR

2. Open the Start Menu, then type compmgmt.msc OR diskmgmt.msc in the search box and press enter.

3. If prompted by UAC, then click on Yes.

4. In the left pane of Computer Management, click on Disk Management under Storage.
 
5. To Change a Drive Letter
NOTE: You cannot change a drive letter if the drive is either a system partition or a boot partition, like the partition or drive that Windows 7 is installed on. If you get an error, the partition or drive you are trying to change might be in use. Close any program or window that is using the partition or drive and try again.
A) Right click on a listed drive, partition, or volume letter that you want to change the drive letter of, and click on Change Drive Letter and Paths.
 
B) Click on the Change button.
 
C) Select (dot) Assign the following drive letter, then select an available drive letter from the drop down box and click on OK.
 
D) Click on Yes to confirm changing the drive letter.
 
E) If you get a AutoPlay pop-up window afterwards, then you can just close this. It indicates that the drive, partition, or volume has been assigned the drive letter.
F) Go to step 8.
6. To Add a Drive Letter
NOTE: This is to assign a drive letter to a drive, partition, or volume if a drive letter has been removed or does not already have one assigned to it.
A) Right click on a listed drive, partition, or volume that does not have a driver letter that you want to add one to, and click on Change Drive Letter and Paths.

B) Click on the Add button. C) Select (dot) Assign the following drive letter, then select an available drive letter from the drop down box and click on OK.

D) Go to step 8.
7. To Remove a Drive Letter
NOTE: This will only remove the drive letter and not the drive, partition, or volume. This can be useful if you are getting a low disk space warning for this drive letter.
A) Right click on a listed drive, partition, or volume letter that you want to remove the drive letter of, and click on Change Drive Letter and Paths.
 
B) Click on the Remove button.
 
C) Click on Yes to confirm removing the drive letter.
8. Close the Computer Management or Disk Management window.

WARNING: Do not change the C: drive letter.
A) Right click on a listed /DosDevices\(drive letter) (Ex: /DosDevices\D: ) that you want to change the drive letter of, then click on Rename.

B) Rename it with a drive letter that you want to use, and is not already listed here, and press enter.
For Example: If I wanted to change it from D: to K: , then I would rename it to /DosDevices\K: instead.

Great one indeed.
However the provision of screenshots would have been easier for newbies to trace it.
