When I open explorer it always opens in the windows directory - can this be changed somehow?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Whoops that is not correct, what I meant was right click on the folder you want to start from (or HD) then select explore from the drop down menu.
If you don't have the explorer option on your drop down menu let me know and I will show you how to add it
Sorry for the above post, I meant to hit comment and somehow I hit the wrong one and posted as an answer
