Default Changing drive letters?

Just installed Windows, but I just put the 2 drives I had on random SATA connectors, so it installed Windows on the E drive, and my secondary drive is drive C, Optical is D. How do I flip the drive letters around and possibly get the secondary to be G (was G on previous PC, project files are all under drive G), Windows drive C? It boots fine, it just annoys.

Just go into Control Panel>Admin Tools>Computer Managment>Storage>Disk Management.

From this menu you should be able to see all your current drives on the system. Right click on the drive you want to change and you'll see a option to change the driver letter and path. Click that and then click change drive letter and change it to the letter you want.

You can change drive letters on windows for anything except one exception. You can NEVER change the drive letter of the windows drive.

Yeah, you can change the name, just not the actual letter.
