View Full Version : explorer shortcut

can someone please tell me what the shortcut path should be so that it opens explorer with the c: drive open rather than just 'my computer'?? i know its in one of the pc world mags but just can't find it!!
any one also know the paths for shortcuts to restart and close down computer?? can't remember where i saw these, but really handy. (windows 200 pc)
thanks all.

try this Terry,

in the shortcut, after EXPLORER.EXE add /e

so it should read something like this:

explorer.exe /e

and that *should* open explorer in c:

Hope this works for you.
