When you open "Explorer" in Win2kPro, it defaults to the "My Documents" folder.  Is there a registry edit to have "Explorer" default to the root of "C:\"?

It's not clear to me where you are starting Explorer from but wherever it is, you can just change the command used to open it from:

EXPLORER

to:

EXPLORER "C:\"

Whatever you put after the EXPLORER command will be the default folder used.
