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
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.
