Vista Windows Explorer

Vista Home Premium 64bit SP1;
I want to open the Windows Explorer in "Computer" instead of "Documents" or whatever.
The path of the link should be extended with a couple of parameters, but I don't know which.
Who knows?

Right click the shortcut in the start menu, choose "Properties", and change the target path to

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

Note: there is a space between "exe" and the forward slash. Actually, you could just copy and paste the link in this message into the appropriate box to save any hassle.

Thanks, but I knew that one, and it opens in C:.
But I have two hard Disks, divided in 6 partitions. So I want to open in "Computer", in order to be ale to choose between those six partitions.
What change?

If you right click computer from the start menu it will give you a option for a desktop icon. Then you just need to click that short cut whenever you want to view your partions.
