I have been puzzling about the varied responses to attempts to rename partitions, be they entire disks (devices) or a number of them on one 'disk'. I got a little insight from "If the drive you want to rename contains system files, Windows will ask you to provide administrator permission in order for the new name to be set." but am not convinced that is the only 'condition' for being asked permission. I would love to know the full story on this, especially how to avoid that intrusive querying.

Windows will ask to provide administrator permission to ensure the system security. Using the Windows tool to rename partition or other tools like mini tool partition wizard to rename partition is not a difficult question. You don't need to think too much about this.

What is [apparently needlessly] giving me thoughts about this, is the varied responses I get to my renaming efforts. If it were possible, I'd like to streamline the procedure, so that my attempts to rename would NEVER be queried. I only rename USB sticks, Hard drives and partitions.

Operating systems are created in such a way that there are double checks in place to help prevent mishaps being caused by accidental wrong clicking and/or the rather more nefarious misuse of ones computer by others, the checks are a safeguard that are there for a very good reason, keep in mind that not everyone is 100% competent on a computer and the "intrusive querying" is actually Windows saying "are you sure that you want to do that".

I want Windows to take seriously my answer to 'are you sure that you want to do that ?' and take me at my word, without rechecking. I do not get queried EVERY time, but I would like it to be NEVER. If there is no prevention, I will have to live with it, but I suspect there IS a tweak that will satisfy my desire.
