I'm sorry, It must be because I'm French. If you just click my computer you end up in explorer. No?

If you want a shortcut to Explorer. Right click desktop, create a shortcut and paste C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe /e,::{20d04fe0-3aea-1069-a2d8-08002b30309d}

I think he right clicked on the My Computer icon

He could have just double clicked the My Computer icon (or Computer) on the desktop...that will get you explorer also

Doesn't Windows Explorer shows as part of your TaskBar Icons? I know mine is there, which at first glance, I thought it was weird. Now though... I love it

Ya, Ya thanks everybody for ur help. Actually I knew when u double click on MY computer in Windows 7 it opens up explorer windows but I was not SURE abt it b'coz in my last thread one senior member told me some instruction to solve my PREVIOUS problem where he had mentioned explorer specifically so I thought he was talking of some other explorer. Let see his instructions work or not. I was referring to this thread BTW:
