In XP, when you open explorer it always locates itself at the users start menu folder. This can be anoying and I would prefer it to open at the root of the drive or at another designated folder. Does anyone know if this is possible and how to change the settings to do it???

Right click on an empty part of your desktop, choose New then Shortcut.

In the empty box type in

%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e, c:\

Then click on Next then Finish.

This will open up at the root of the C drive
