How do I change Windows Explorer to open in a specified location, rather than c:\My Documents?

1) Make a shortcut to Windows Explorer on your Desktop:
    * Click Start->Programs->Accessories.
    * Right-click Explorer.
    * Click Send To->Desktop.

2) Right-click the new Explorer shortcut icon, and select

3) Change the Target field
    from %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe
      to %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,path

    (where "path" is the directory you want Explorer to open in,
including the drive.)

    For example, to open automatically in c:\bob\dobbs, add
" /e,c:\bob\dobbs" (no quotes) to the Target field.

4) You can have several Explorer shortcuts on your desktop, each
opening to a different directory.
