When one opens My Computer, there are columns, typically for Name; Type; Total Size, and Free Space. When one opens View menu; and 'Choose details' there are 6 column-options including Comments. Where is the opportunity to enter a Comment for an item in My Computer ?

That comment field is for the file developer to add comments...

Thank you for that reference. The suggestion seems to be to learn a whole programming language - I think that is a bit excessive for just adding comments into My Computer.
Could you give me a 'formula' to follow to add (and revise) comments for just the HDDs ?

click on My Computer...
select the drive you want to name until it becomes highlighted.

Then click on File...
Then click on Properties...
In the box,... type a name for the drive ...max is 11 characters...
If the drive already contains a name simply over type a new name in the box.
Then click on the OK button to save your changes and exit the Properties Window.
Then close the My Computer Window

Thank you. You must have telepathetic skills, because I came up with that workaround myself. It does NOT enter anything into 'Comment', but it does give the opportunity to 'identify' the drive.
