If you create a new shortcut on your desktop, and use those targets, do they work then? If so, you could pin it to the taskbar, delete the shortcut on the desktop, and use it instead.
Yes, the ''Start in'' field is empty, I always check that.

I just tried to add a new shortcut with those targets,
I also tried to pin Computer on taskbar as you said on another
thread..Still nothing

Sistah,

You might see if running a SFC /SCANNOW command may help in case you have any corrupted system files responsible for this.

Also, as a test, create a new administrator account and see how it works in it.

I did the SFC /SCANNOW and everything seems to be in order.
I tried again the windows explorer and nothing.

2 days later I was ready to create a new admin account as you said
but as habit, I clicked the windows explorer folder form the taskbar
and...it worked.
It just worked.
Its weird!

Thank you for the support anyway

I would also like to know can it be done using any registry, if yes please let us know. It would be very nice for modders like us.

Hello Niceguy,

If you even can, I haven't found the location in the registry for this yet.
