    Shortcut to C Drive and computer xp doesn't work (Vista Business)

    I would love to use my 2 deskotp icons that take me right to
    either the c drive see a.jpg
    or to a list of the drives see.
    to work under vista which they don't seem to .
    shortcut 1
    C:WINDOWSexplorer.exe /e, C:
    and start in c:windows

    shortuct 2:
    C:WINDOWSexplorer.exe /n, /e, /select, C:
    start in c:windows

    I had the same problem on going from windows 2000 to xp
    ? what would be the correct shortcut for vista
    THanks

    Simple with Vista. Open "Computer", highlight the C: drive (left click once), right click, drag to the desktop, and "Create shortcut here".

    Different strokes for different folks. I personally appreciate the "Details Pane" at the bottom and regularly use the "Navigation Pane" on the top left. However, you can make Explorer windows as simple or complex as you like by doing this:

    - Open any Windows Explorer window
    - On the Menubar click "Orgainize" and then "Layout"
    - Check or uncheck those items you want or don't want displayed
    - DONE
