    I know how to get the Windows Explorer shortcut to open with its
    focus on the C: drive by changing the target path on a Win98 pc.
    I don't know what to change in XP Pro.
    I want Explorer to open with its focus on my C: drive and expanded.
    Currently the shortcut for explorer from Start>Programs>Accessories
    looks like this.
    Target: %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe
    Start in: %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%
    It opens with the focus on My Documents.
    I plan on just creating a new shortcut on the desktop then dragging
    it to my quick launch. I use explorer alot and find it handy to have it
    in my quick launch.
    What should the Target: and Start in: be to open at C: ?
    I just installed xp pro yesterday and haven't learn all the tweaks yet.
    Thanks in advance.

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