How to change Windows Explorer default startup folder?



By default,when we start Windows Explorer (from the Programs || Accessories path), it opens showing the My Documents folder. What if we would like it to open at C:\ instead ?

  • Click Start || Programs || Accessories
  • Right–click Windows Explorer, and click Properties
  • Modify the Target field to read %SystemRoot%\Explorer.exe /root, C:\
  • Click OK
