Windows Explorer and 'Folder Names'

Where do I go to customizes what appears at the top of the windows explorer page when I've opened a folder or a file share?

File Share Example - I want it to read: <my company file share on server 10.10.10.1>

Server 2003

Hmm, I know how to name a mapped drive.  I just want to change what I see at the top of the page when a user connects to a mapped drive or opens a local shared folder.  I'm sure there's something native to Server that allows me to do this.

Changing what is seen in the title bar to custom text.

That will work if you rename the drive, if you set it in a logon script it will do it for everyone.

No screen shot.  For example let's say I open a folder that is named Demo.  The title bar will show/say Demo.  I would like to have custom text there but still retain the folder name of Demo.  I've seen this done but I can't remember how it's done.

I just came from a presentation that had custom text.  I'm pretty sure, 99.999% sure, as I know the guy that did the presentation that no VB was used.  The descripter was changed.  Yet I can't find where to change it.

OK, do you mean using the desktop.ini file?

I was thinking desktop.ini but I don't see where to replace the default text for a descriptor.  I believe it's the share name description.  I'm at home so I can't test it but I'll try in the morning.  Thanks for the help.
