    When I currently llok at my WinExplorer then the drive letters appear NOT alphabetically sorted.

    Drive W:\ eg. comes above drive C:\ and D:\

    How can I tell WinExplorer to sort the drives alphabetically?

    Do you mean like this?

    That's done by having the Drive Letter shown first, which is a registry edit using the following code saved as a .reg file and merged to the registry:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer]
    "ShowDriveLettersFirst"=dword:00000004
    If I remove the Drive Letters, my drives stay in the same order due to, you'll notice, the judicious choice of Drive Names.
