    Question windows explorer always shows a folder when logging in

    Here's my issue:

    • Running Windows 7 Pro
    • When I log in to the admin account on my PC, Windows Explorer always shows the following folder
    • C:\Users\Dad\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Sta rt Menu\Programs\Startup\Plugins


    Dad is the account designated as Admin on the PC.

    If I close the folder, log off, and log back in, the folder still shows up. (I do not have the Folder Options View option "Restore previous folder windows at logon checked.)

    Any ideas what's happening?

    Thanks

    If you put a folder in the Startup folder of Start Menu, All Programs then it will ......... startup.

    Move that Plugins folder anywhere else on the start menu and it will not display automatically.

    A Google Search shows many articles on changing the default folder that opens when you open Windows Explorer. I hope this helps to answer your question.
