I really don't think that can be done, as it really is opposite of any logical reason.

You could reduce the width of the columns to the left, which will move the last column so it is visible when you open the folder. If you close those columns enough there will be no slide bar at the bottom.

Press the End key as soon as the folder opens. That should put you where you want to be.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

You actually can create a shortcut to open folder like this.
But you'll need to match one condition: last file in your folder must be never change.
For example:
- Sort files by filename.
- Create empty file, which name start with "Z" - so it will be last in that sorting order (example: "ZSTUB.ZZZ").

Now click anywhere you want and create shortcut for "Explorer.exe" - it's system process, so you can just type this name and don't bother to find file on the system folder.
After that right click on this shortcut, select properties and on shortcut tab change object field.
Replace this:
to something like this (note a space between "<...>explorer.exe" and "/select,<...>"):
%windir%\explorer.exe /select,"H:\MyDocs\A Lot of Files Here!\ZSTUB.ZZZ"
Click OK.
Now when you open this shortcut your Explorer always highlight this file, which forces it to scroll to the end.
