    Default Windows 11 query.

    I am now running W11 on a Uefi system. The C: drive is GPT. When I go to "MY PC" on the desktop, I have System (C and System Reserved (D. Two inquiries a) Can System Reserved be allocated another disk number ie. A: or say M:? and b) can that specific entry be hidden? I just like to be pedantic and prefer that the partition number be usable . When I use and external HDD, I would prefer to call it D: as my mini brain can comprehend these things better.

    The System Reserved normally doesn't have a drive letter anyway. WARNING moving the System reserved CAN cause the Computer not to boot, as it contains boot files. So Do so at your own risk.

    Best to make a backup Image of the drive 1st if you are going to try.

    Found a kind of non technical video that shows how BUT notice its mentioned SEVERAL times about the damage you can do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iAz4qGrfTDg

    Never tried it myself, no need, the video shows W10 but would be similar in W11.
