We all know enough of Windows Explorer.

Technically speaking…it is an application that comes bundled with Microsoft Windows program and provides a graphical user interface for accessing the file systems running of a Windows computer.

Wiki says…

…It is the component of the operating system that presents the user interface on the monitor and enables the user to control the computer. It is sometimes referred to as the Windows GUI shell, or simply “Explorer”.

But there are default settings in Windows Explorer and it open the My Document Folder by default, which is very convenient because most of the users keep their documents in the My Documents.

But however, if you work on a different folder an need to access it often through Windows Explorer, you may want to change this default setting. For example, in your office computer, which you use primarily for drafting letters, you may be having a folder Silki’s Office letters, and may like that whenever you open Windows Explorer, this folder should get open. How to do that…Read on.

  • Click Start > All Programs > Accessories.
  • Right-click Windows Explorer and then click Properties.

  • The Target box currently shows %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe.
  • Type the characters /n, /e, /select, C:\, at the end of the line. Make sure not to omit spaces.The line should now read %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /n, /e, /select, C:\
    Click OK.

  • This will make C:\ as the default folder. If you want C:\Sili as the default folder, then replace C:\ with C:\Silki.
