More drives are made available in “My Computers” context menu.

This setting can make more drives available in the context menu of My Computer.

Tweak for : Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows 2000, Windows Vista
You can add links of various drives in the context menu that opens after right-clicking on the "My Computer" icon. On clicking the added link, it will instantly bring up the selected drive folder.

For this, you have to make changes in the registry. Go to Start > Run and enter "regedit". Now, search the key listed below. Make a new key under "Shell" named "SysDrvA" and set its default string value to "Go To Drive A:\". Then, create a sub key "Command" under "SysDrvA", and change its default string value to "C:\Windows\explorer.exe A:\" (where C:\ is the default Windows drive).

Follow the same steps for other drives like C: and D:. Create the custom keys under "Shell" by names "SysDrvC" and "SysDrvD". In the next step, set their default string values to "Go To Drive C:\" and "Go To Drive D:\" respectively. Finally, create "Command" sub keys under each custom key and set their string value to "C:\Windows\explorer.exe C:\" and "C:\Windows\explorer.exe D:\". And you are done.

The changes will take effect after a restart or logoff.

NOTE:
For Windows 2000 users, the default string values for "Command" key are "C:\WINNT\explorer.exe A:\", "C:\ WINNT\explorer.exe C:\" and "C:\ WINNT\explorer.exe D:\" respectively.
