Create a shortcut on your desktop to explorer.exe and include the following switches:

explorer /n, /e, d

Instead of d you can specify any folder you want.

Explorer command line switches.

Syntax
EXPLORER.EXE [/n][/e][,/root,<object>][[,/select],<sub object&gt

Switches
/n: Opens a new window in single-paned (My Computer) view for each item selected, even if the new window duplicates a window that is already open.

/e: Uses Windows Explorer view. Windows Explorer view is most similar to File Manager in Windows version 3.x. Note that the default view is Open view.

/root,<object>: Specifies the root level of the specified view. The default is to use the normal namespace root (the desktop). Whatever is specified is the root for the display.

/select,<sub object>: Specifies the folder to receive the initial focus. If "/select" is used, the parent folder is opened and the specified object is selected.
