    Windows Explorer - Single pane

    In XP how do I create a shortcut to have Windows Explorer open to a drive in a single pane.
    Single pane = the whole window with nothing but folders.

    Right click your Window Explorer Shortcut and click Properties

    Change the Target to %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e
    note the space

    The "%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e" came up with a dual pane.
