Hi, has anyone got a copy of the switch that is added to the shortcut line for Windows Exlorer on XP, after the c:\windows\explorer.exe command there is a switch to make explorer open with a expanded view of the c: drive. It is something like "/eC:" without the quotes.

explorer.exe /n,/e,C:
Is that the one you want, SantasLittleHelper?

Hi MAJ, tried your suggestion, but I can't get it to work. It is very similar to that, thanks anyway.

C:\WINDOWS\EXPLORER.EXE /n,/e,C:
Works for me.

Sorry, SantasLittleHelper, I thought you just meant the last part of the path. In XP the complete path is:

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

Hi Powerless and MAJ, tried it again and the switch works fine, thank you both for your help, problem solved.
