[DOUBT] Change default folders

Hi,

First of all, HI TO EVERYONE! I'm new on this forum. This is first new post... ('^^)

I have searched in the forum (not in Google, sorry...)...



I wanted to know about changing the default folder opened when you start Windows Explorer.



Thanks!

Hi!!

Thanks about your answers...

Sorry, that wasn't my doubt... I try to explain better... ;-)

When you open Windows Explorer... It's opened by default with the folder 'Libraries' by default... (see attached JPG [in spanish, sorry])...

I want to change this default openend location... ;-)

How, or from where, are you opening it? If you double click on Computer it will open showing your drives. If you open from Start it will open as seen above.

This address will open into My Documents;
%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /root,::{20E25881-F081-448e-85C9-4707A9400593}

This will open into your personal folder;
%windir%\explorer.exe /root,::{59031A47-3F72-44A7-89C5-5595FE6B30EE}

Create a new shortcut on the desktop with either of these locations, unpin your current explorer icon and pin the new one.

That's what i did for first instance, a shorcut, but i remember that in XP we had the option/button in properties to "Move..." 'my docs' folder... (the folder opened by default when you open Windows Explorer) to another location,...

The AIM for ALL of this question is to locate, by default, ALL my files I use DIRECTLY in another partition...

My experience is that is more secure to be saved files externaly to the SYSTEM partition... ;-)

Thanks a lot! Win7 really likes to me... ('^^) [ I'm an IT Freak...]
