Default Explorer settings

No big deal, but it has been annoying me for a while now.  When I open my Explorer by default my C drive is expanded to C/Winnt/Profiles/<myUserProfile>/StartMenu.  I then have to colapse it back to C and/or pick another drive and look for the files I need.

My question is:  How do I set up my Explorer, so when it is opened it is already colapsed to the highest level?

>>C/Winnt/Profiles/<myUserProfile>/StartMenu<<

That means your starting explorer with a right-mouse over the Start button
so it will always show that path when opened that way.

- Use your keyboard to open explorer
- Windows Key (the Microsoft flag key) + e Key
- setup explorer where you want it
- in the menu Tools/Folder Options... then the View(tab)
- select "Like Current Folder" then click OK
- size explorer and position it where you want it then hold your shift key down and
  click the X gadget (top right corner)
