I could not find this question answered already although I would have thought it would have been asked before.

In Win95 or 98, when Windows Explorer was opened, the file tree on the left would automatically expand "My Computer" and then the C drive. When Windows Explorer is opened in Win 2000 using the Explorer icon, “My Documents” is expanded.  Is there anywhere that I can set what is displayed when Windows Explorer is opened in Win 2000.

yes your can.  When you open explorer just right click on the folder you want as your default.  Click properties and go to target folder location.  Just type the path of the folder you want it to always go to

%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,c:
