    I'm fine tuning a bit on my active desktop and was wondering if anybody can show me how to open a folder using explorer.exe instead of internet explorer. Maybe I'm just being picky but it drives me nuts when my movies folder, etc open in internet explorer rather than explorer.exe. I'm assuming its possible because you I've got My Computer opening in explorer using the ShellExJ method. I just don't know how to modify that to make it open a different path. Thanks.

    Try this:
    EXAMPLE
    <*A onClick=" ShellExJ('C:\\windows\\explorer.exe', 'G:\\Downloads\'); return false;" href="java script:;" TARGET=LINKS>Downloads</A>

    Change to fit your needs. Credit goes to Angel333. :cool:
