How do you assign the same drive letter all the time?

Each hard disk can only have one Drive letter. You can't have two drives labeled "C" for instance. However, if you are asking about a USB device getting the same letter, then the best way to make sure you get the same letter is to keep that device always connected. Once you disconnect such device, then all bets are off. Say that you have for example an external hard drive (assigned to F) and a USB flash drive (assigned to G). If you disconnect them both and tomorrow (or even today) you connect the USB flash drive first and the hard drive next, then the flash drive will get the letter F and the external hard drive will get the letter G. This is based on the fact that the computer assigns letters based on what is already connected and goes down the alphabet in order from there on regardless of what you connect next.
