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

Sorry, my suggestion works only if you want to see C: drive.

But, as suggested here http://www.jsiinc.com/SUBG/TIP3100/rh3120.htm, you could use C:\WINNT\explorer.exe /e
