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?

if you enable the quick lanuch bar you can select the shortcut to IE, select properties and select run minimized

>>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)
