RE: explorer file switches
Hi A.K,

This involves changing the properties of the Windows Explorer shortcut.
Right-click on the shortcut and select the shortcut tab. In this tab, edit
the target line to read as follows (note that the default target is
%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe):
%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /n, /root, c:\ /select, c:\[FOLDER] where
[FOLDER] is the optional path to the desired folder.
