When I start Explorer, it starts in My Documents, how can I make it start in My Computer instead?

1. Right click on the icon you use to launch Explorer and select Properties.
2. In the Target box, type (or replace the existing text with) the following:

%SystemRoot%\Explorer.exe /e, path

Where in place of path above you should enter the actual path to the directory you want open by default. For example C:\Windows, or C:\Documents and Settings, etc. The path also doesn't require quotes around it. To have My Computer listed as the default selection, type explorer.exe /e,
