L.S,

Everytime I open up the windows explorer, it comes up with drive C and the windows folder(directory).
How can I change this to drive E:\

Thanks for a reply!

Hi Atanis:

Right click the Start button, Click Open, then click Programs, then Right Click on the Explorer icon, then click Properties. Click on the Shortcut and you will see the calling line for Explorer.

Change it to this:

C:\Windows\Explorer.exe /n, /e, /Select, C:\*.*

Which will show you all of your drives, but unexpanded, or use this:

C:\Windows\Explorer.exe /n, /e, /Select, E:\*.*

To see drive "E".

NOTE: This presumes that Windows is installed on drive "C" if its on any other drive, change the C:\Windows to the drive letter where windows is installed.

BTW: If you want just a drive only view without each folder, remove the *.* after the E:\*.*, making it:  E:\

Thanks for your reply,

Your answer works just fine if I use the windows explorer via START, PROGRAMS and then EXPLORER.
Opening up the explorer via right-mouse-click on START and then EXPLORER is also possible. How can I change this to open up with an other drive?

Atanis, when you right click on start and then click explore, it's supposed to take you to the Start Menu only for program applications. This is by design to give you access to the actual menu.
