    Default How to change default folder for windows explorer?

    Every time I open explorer it goes to some crazy folder that I never use. I would like to change the default folder to c:\ root. Does anyone know how that can be accomplished? Oh yea, I am using Vista. Thanks

    Create a shortcut and add one of the commands below to the TARGET box in the
    properties box of the shortcut.


    Configure Windows Explorer

    My Computer" highlighted in left side with all drives visible but not
    expanded and C: highlighted in right side: %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe
    /e,/select,c:

    Desktop highlighted and nothing expanded: %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe
    /e,/n,/select,/root,c:

    All drives visible and the system drive highlighted and expanded in full
    screen: %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,/select

    All drives visible and the system drive expanded in small screen:
    %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,/select,%systemroot%

    Only Windows Directory visible highlighted and expanded:
    %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,/root,%systemroot%

    All drives visible but only C: highlighted and expanded:
    %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,c:

    Nothing expanded and My Computer highlighted in right side:
    %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /n,/e,/select,

    Opens the Windows folder as a folder: %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe %systemroot%

    Opens as "My Computer": %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe %systemroot%,

    This opens the Desktop folder with "My Computer" highlighted:
    %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe %systemroot%,/select,

    "Desktop" highlighted in the left side and no drives visible:

    %systemroot%\explorer.exe
    /e,/root,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D},/select

    "My Computer" highlighted in left side and all drives visible but none
    expanded:

    %systemroot%\explorer.exe /e,/root,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}

    "Desktop" in left side highlighted and "My Computer" highlighted in right
    side and no drives visible:

    %systemroot%\explorer.exe /e,/select,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D
