    Default Simple explorer prob.

    How do I get explorer to open up with the explorer pane on the left every time? I know there is an option somewhere, but have forgotten where,

    Windows ME.

    Cheers

    Try this:

    Right click on the Windows Explorer shortcut, select Properties, and in the Target box, type

    C:\WINDOWS\EXPLORER.EXE /e,

    and this should open Explorer with the pane on the left. If you want it to always open with a specific drive selected (such as C:\) add the drive after the comma, such as

    C:\WINDOWS\EXPLORER.EXE /e, c:

    I hope this works for you as it did me.

    Thanx Mike. It does work. Is it possible to get it to do this when I double click on a folder on the desktop such as My Computer? ie not a shortcut per say.

    Default Explorer tree

    In explorer, click the view menu, select explorer bar and then folders from the submenu.

    Default Re: Explorer tree

    Cheers Tristan, but knew that.

    I mustn't have explained myself very well - sorry.

    I want the window to open up with the explorer tree there every time by default, instead of a) opening exporer and then navigating to where I want to go,

    or b) opening the window and then selecting 'folders'.

    Maybe I am wrong and this isn't possible - should be if it isn't.
