Hi there.

I have a question. Nothing too difficult :). All I want to know is how do you get Windows Explorer to run with "My Computer" as the default folder it goes to when you run it. You know instead of it being the "My Documents."

Haven't had so much luck myself.

regards

Here is a post from Dirk Diggler on another site:

Click "Start", go to "All Programs", go to "Accessories", and right-click "Windows Explorer", click "Properties", and in the "Target" box type or "Copy and Paste" the bold writing:-


1.) "My Computer" highlighted in left side with all drives visible but not expanded and C: highlighted in right side= %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,/select,c:

2.) Desktop highlighted and nothing expanded = %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,/n,/select,/root,c:

3.) All drives visible and the system drive highlighted and expanded in full screen = %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,/select

4.) All drives visible and the system drive expanded in small screen = %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,/select,%systemroot%

5.) Only Windows Directory visible highlighted and expanded = %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,/root,%systemroot%

6.) All drives visible but only C: highlighted and expanded = %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,c:

7.) Nothing expanded and My Computer highlighted in right side = %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /n,/e,/select,

8.) Opens the Windows folder as a folder = %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe %systemroot%

9.) Opens as "My Computer" = %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe %systemroot%,

10.)This opens the Desktop folder with "My Computer" highlighted = %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe %systemroot%,/select,

11.) "Desktop" highlighted in the left side and no drives visible:-
%systemroot%\explorer.exe /e,/root,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D},/select

12.) "My Computer" highlighted in left side and all drives visible but none expanded:-
%systemroot%\explorer.exe /e,/root,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}

Many thanks to XP Guru for the next one:-

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
