    Windows Explorer opening screen choice.

    In Windows 7 home, when I open Explorer it opens in Libraries, I then select Documents, then My Documents to get to where I want - Documents Library. Is there a way of customising Explorer to make it open directly into Documents Library every time. - I have tried but without success.

    Hey Y'all,

    I've notice a strange behavior in Win 8 on using custom shortcuts for File explorer.
    If you use the standard shortcut which installs with Win 8 & 8.1 and open multiple instances of File Explorer using the Shift key you get the following on the task bar:
    StdFileExpIcon.JPG
    However, if you create a custom shortcut to open directly to your Documents folder you get this:
    CreatedSCFileExp.JPG
    Notice that in this case you get a second icon on the taskbar and it has the multiple pages.

    Anyone know why?
    May the Forces of good computing be with you!
