Windows 7: Changing Explorers start with win-e

11 Jul 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional
Changing Explorers start with win-e

Pressing win-e brings up windows explorer.

It always starts in "computer"

Is there someway to change this start folder to Favorites instead?

There are a ton of articles on the net all showing how you can make a shortcut and add an argument, but none of them affect "win-e"

(Hopefully something that doesn't require extra programs)

Well, it would require autohotkey and a small script. But the resources used would be almost zero.

Customize the [Windows]+E key shortcut to open what you want

I don't believe it can be done natively. A Guy

Anyone else having this issue?? I haven't read about it anywhere, but it's pretty annoying build 7000 & 7100.. explorer.exe windows just do not always shutdown fully. I'm not sure entirely what causes it, maybe move operations, as I do a lot of them. I can pretty much open an explorer window,...
