Restoring folders in windows 7?

In Vista (Home) when i booted up my PC it used to restore folders (i.e. open up again) i had open before the reboot/shutdown which was very handy since i didnt have to nagivate back to those folders again. In Windows 7 it doesnt appear to be doing this anymore, is there any way to set it to this action?
