folders in explorer
hi!

when you start windows explorer and open folders on the left side, explorer
always shows all the data of the main drive, and i don´t want him to do this.
i only want to see the drives and not all the folders on the drives. is there
a way to change this?

Yes. Make a shorcut to explorer with this commandline:

C:\Windows\explorer.exe /n, /e, /select, c:\

Re: folders in explorer
It doesn't need to be that complicated or specific,

%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,

Will get you the same, exact result.

I'm sure you are right. The command line in my post are what i used in
XP, don't really remember what the meaning of the switches are, but it
works

But yours are way shorter.

BTW, where does one go to find that kind of info ? F1 help don't seem
to yield anything.
