    It might have been asked before, but I didn't find anything when I searched.
    How do I make explorer start up showing the c:\-dir or maybe my computer instaƩad of my documents?

    I think this might apply somewhat to this thread so...

    How do I make a shortcut that will open windows explorer showing a specific directory?

    Basically, what I want is a shortcut that opens a folder in windows explorer.

    The directory I want to open is:

    C:\Program Files\Novalogic\Delta Force\

    it saves a lot of time and a lot of clicking.

    This should do the trick:-

    %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,C:\Program Files\Novalogic\Delta Force

    Thanks for the help, it worked.

    If you could, please get me a reference on where to find that kind of information for myself.

    Thanks again

    Unfortunately I used no reference, I was just bored one day, so I started fiddling with the settings and came up with a few that worked. I put them on the link on my first post above.
