Windows Explorer to open Documents Library

I would like to know if there is any possible way that if I had to click on my Windows Explorer icon that it would open up my Documents library folder directly so as that I have immediate access to these folders. If not how would I be able to then create a shortcut for myself that would open this folder.

With many thanks
Dave

Hi and welcome


Navigate to the folder you want to open. Right click>crate shortcut>drag to desktop. May require either run as admin, or take ownership. Bith have instructions in the tutorial section

Hi Ken.

Thank you you have left me asking myself how I could have missed that one as I have done that one before in previous versions of the OS. Probably still trying to settle down to Win 7.

Thank you

Easier still .. drag "Documents" to the taskbar and it will pin to the explorer jump table. Then it's just a question of right clicking.

Or you could click "right mouse button" on the "start orb" then click "open windows explorer" which goes to "libraries" by default
