    I have tried using the view folder settings option unsuccessfully to get the c drive folder to stay open when launching windows explorer. Everytime I open windows explorer, the c drive is closed (has plus sign next to it). I want this to always be open. Is this possilbe? If so, how?

    Thanks for the help.
