Open other than My Documents

By ozi Eagle ·

Dumb question, probably, but does anyone out there know how to set win2K explorer to open at anything other than My Documents?

I access all my info wthout using My Documents, and it is frustrating that every time I use Win Explorer I wind up in My Docs, as default. I really need it to open My Computer or C drive.
Any ideas?

1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then right-click Windows Explorer.

2. On the menu that appears, click Properties.

3. In the Target box, append the "/root" command-line switch to the "%SystemRoot%\Explorer.exe" command, using the startup location that you want. For example, if you want Windows Explorer to start at the root of drive C, edit the command to the following:
%SystemRoot%\Explorer.exe /root, C

4. Click OK.
