Right-click on Start menu, then Explore

If you right-click on the Start menu and choose “Explore” a lot like I do, but never want it to drill down to where it does, here’s a very handy tip that I found.

Disclaimer: If you mess up your registry and don’t have a backup, it’s not my fault.

  1. Run regedit
  2. Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\explore\ddeexec
  3. Edit the value and replace "%l" and %I with the path you want Explorer to open to. For example: [ExploreFolder("d:\download", d:\download, %S)]
