Customize Explorer

by Sheryl V In reply to Customize Explorer

That is a very good question! There is in fact a way to do so.

You can create a shortcut with the command line:
%windir%\explorer.exe /e,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}

To modify the shortcut to Windows Explorer:
1. Right click the taskbar.
2. Select Properties.
3. Click the Start Menu Programs tab.
4. Click Advanced.
5. Double-click Programs in the right hand pane.
6. Right click the Windows Explorer shortcut.
7. Click Properties.
8. Click the Shortcut tab.
9. Changethe Target to %systemroot%\explorer.exe /e,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D} and click OK

This definitely works for NT Explorer. Let me know if you want me to e-mail you the short cut. You can just replace all your shortcuts or change theregistry key accordingly.

Hope this helps
