When I open Windows Explorer from XP with SP2 I always have to click the "folder" button in the tool bar to see the directory tree.  Is there a setting that will show the directory tree automatically when I open Explorer?

To Start Explorer in desktop view mode use command:

explorer /e,/root,

You can also set up a shortcut with these parameters...
