How do I change the default folder Explorer start-up expands the directory tree to..... ???

Hi,
    How do you change the default folder on Explorer start-up.

I go to start and right mouse, select Explore... and Explorer opens and expands the directory tree to:
C:\Documents and Settings\john.doe\Start Menu

How do you change that to only expand "My Computer" to show all my drives that are available?

Thanks, Bill
