1) Open the Start Menu, right-click the My Documents icon and select Show On Desktop from the pop-up menu.

2) Drag the My Documents icon from the Desktop onto the Quick Launch bar, immediately to the right of the Start button. If you can?t see the icon in the Quick Launch bar, unlock the Taskbar (right-click in an empty spot on the Taskbar and, if there?s a tick (checkmark) beside the Lock The Taskbar option, select the option to disable it).

3) Now drag the horizontal divider between the Quick Launch area and the programme launch area to the right until your new icon is visible. Then relock the Taskbar by reselecting the Lock The Taskbar option.

4) If you desire, remove the Desktop My Documents icon by clicking Start, right-clicking the My Documents icon on the Start Menu and reselecting Show On Desktop.

Hope this is what you mean.
In the Tools menu in Windows Explorer, click Folder Options.

In the Click items as follows section, click Single?click to open an item (point to select).

Note To access Windows Explorer, click Start, point to All Programs, and then click Windows Explorer.

or did you want to open Windows Explorer from Start menu to see My documents? If so, I collected this from somewhere:-

If you want Windows Explorer to open to the folder C:\My Documents, right- click the Windows Explorer shortcut that you use to run the program and choose "Properties." At the Windows Explorer Properties dialog box, click the Shortcut tab. Click in the Target entry box, and then press End. Add to the end of the existing line "/e, c:\My Documents".
