explorer shortcut parameters

I keep a shortcut to Windows Explorer on my desktop for convenience.  I would like to have a couple of Explorer shortcuts to immediately go to particular directories.  For example, a shortcut named "Explorer - MyDirectory" that would open on MyDirectory.  I can put the directory name in the shortcut target
 (C:Windows\Exploere.EXE C:\MyDirectory) but then it opens the directory with the "View" set to list.  Is there a way I can control the View (to set it to Details, for example) as well as other properties of the Explorer window opened from the targeted shortcut?

You are correct in putting the directory afterwards the .exe to get that specific directory to load.

Now to make sure it loads in the DETAILS format instead of Large Icons, etc....there is no actual switch, but you simply first load the directory, set it to view details and when you close it, make sure you click on the X box in the upper right corner.  this closes the directory and REMEMBERS the last viewing format utilized for THAT SPECIFIC directory.  therefore, you can create several shortcuts and have it open with different viewing formats if you choose.

I expiremented with it quite a bit and found it very convenient.

Explorer remembers other properties too, as long as you close using the X Box in the upper right corner....just an addition to my answer...
