You can make Windows Explorer open at any location you choose. Right click on the icon you use to open Windows Explorer, and select "Properties". Look at what is in the Target box. It will be something like %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe. Change this to %systemroot%\explorer.exe /e,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}

Thanks for your quick reply
How would I make it open with the C: Drive

%systemroot%\explorer.exe /e, C:

or for any other folder such as "Documents and Settings

%systemroot%\explorer.exe /e, C:\Documents and Settings

You can change the C: part to any path you like. The "My Computer" path is an odd one because it doesn't have a conventional path.
