    I remember back on my old computer, whenever I opened up Windows Explorer, it would open up to My Documents... thats the way I want it. Right now though it's opening up to the root of my C drive. Are there any ways that I can make it so that when I open Windows Explorer, it will automatically open up to My Documents?

    Windows XP explorer switches
    Switch Result
    /n Opens a new single-pane Window for the default selection.
    This is usually the root of the drive on which Windows is installed.
    /e Starts Windows Explorer using its default view.
    /e, <object> Starts Windows Explorer using its default view with the focus on the specified folder.
    /root, <object> Opens a window view of the specified object.
    /select, <object> Opens a window view with the specified folder, file or
    program selected.

    Hope this helps

    Right click WE icon, then properties, then shortcut, then in the Target field: %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e, c:\Net

    Of course change the C:\Net to whatever dir you want it to open to.
