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