How do you save a "view" in Windows Explorer under ME? No matter what I try, every time I go into Windows Explorer is defaults to the original ME view and I have to go through the process of selecting the drive, etc. I tried the ME "help" screens, and they were "no help."

Welcome to TSG!
There is one way to change the default open folder in WinME explorer.
1)create a shortcut of windows explorer on your desktop.
2) right click the new shortcut and select properties
3)Now in the target location type the following as it is shown to have explorer open into you "c" drive


To open "C" drive upon entry Type the following in as shown:

C:\WINDOWS\EXPLORER.EXE /n, /e, c:

To open to "C" drive windows folder Type the following in as shown:

C:\WINDOWS\EXPLORER.EXE /n, /e, c:\windows

To open to to "C" drive windows folder and subfolder profiles Type as shown:

C:\WINDOWS\EXPLORER.EXE /n, /e, c:\windows\profiles

You can select any location within the structure using the string above. The most important part is the
C:\WINDOWS\EXPLORER.EXE /n, /e,
Which designates the place to find Explorer and the switches to be used for display. Hope I have explained myself ok. If not post back. Here is a pic of my explorer target that will open to "C" drive.

pshagnot replied by E-mail stating that the suggested changes
worked fine. He also mentioned there was embedded spaces between some of the charature string that was confusing at first.

Note: If anyone else reviews this thread I would suggest to copy the syntax and paste it to the target area to expose the spaces.
