default directory opening Windows Explorer

Posted: 12-14-2008, 05:00 PM
I have my drive partitioned and save all data to Data Drive. when i open
windows Explorer it defaults to C:\Username\documents which means i have to
scroll and find the partitioned Data drive. Is there some way to change the
default opening directory. I have checked for Options or tools and can't
find anything that works

thank you for your help

You could add a command line switch to the Explorer Shortcut (right
click/properties/target)
See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/130510
It sounds like the switch you want is /select,D:\ (or whatever drive letter
you use)

But a better way might be to just make a shortcut to that drive. When you
click on the shortcut, it opens in Explorer.
You can make a shortcut by Opening Computer and dragging the drive icon and
dropping it on the Start button.
If you click Organize on the Menu Bar in a Window, then select
Layout/Navigation Pane, you can drag any Drive or Folder into the Navigation
Pane and those shortcuts are available from any window.
