XP explorer

  HXP 01:21 12 Apr 2004

I am getting to grips with XP ( I think ) but need some assist on a small prob.

I have created a shortcut to my c:\ drive but would like it to open with the folders view. each time I start it folders view has to be enabled.

I would also like it to start in the root of C:\ but it seems to default to my documents.

Any ideas ? - or have I missed a simple setting on my PC ?

right click on your explorer shortcut on the desktop and select properties

in the box called target, edit the contents to show the following

%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e, /n,

this has always worked for me

Path fix works - Thanks to mrdsgs & huggyg71 - afraid I used win 95 & 98 for 8 years n have got a bit fixed in my ways !

I still find XP a bit quirky .....
