..you could do it using the method below.. I haven't tried it on Vista:
You can use this general information to create exactly which folder or drive you want Windows Explorer to open to. By right clicking the Windows Explorer shortcut in Start-All Programs, (On this XP machine, it's shows up in the Start-All Programs-Accessories listing), then choose "Properties", then choose the Shortcut tab, then in the ?Target? area, the normal setup for opening WE is this:" C:\WINDOWS\EXPLORER.EXE /n,/e,C:\ "(without the quotes). This opens explorer with the C drive expanded. If you would like to have it expand the "Program Files" folder when it opens, just type in Program Files after the backslash at the end of the string of switches. Change the switch, change how it opens. In some versions of Windows you have to find the WE shortcut in C/Windows/Start Menu/Programs/Start Up folder, then make the above changes.
Hope this helps.
I am running Vista Ultimate...I would like to be able to open Windows Explorer with the "tree" already open to my preference rather than having to click through several layers to get to a desired directory...Is this possible? If so, could someone give me step by step directions on how to do it? Really appreciate the assistance...
