    explorer.exe /n, /e, /select, C: (xp sp1)

    I got this shortcut out of PC world or PC computing. It takes you right to c drive root in win2000 much better than to documents and settings.
    However on Win xp. takes you to all the installed drives, ie c drive and cd rom etc.
    Any way i can go one further step in XP and have it go to top of c drive directly like it does in win 2000???

    Take out /n, /select, so that the target is explorer.exe /e, C:

    See <!mskb=307856>Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 307856<!/mskb> for a description of available startup switches for Explorer.exe.

    Re: explorer.exe /n, /e, /select, C: (xp sp1)

    Great! This is the answer to my problem. I wanted to know how to set up a shortcut on my desktop to each of my drives. I set up one to my hard drive by using C: as the target. But D: wouldn't work for the CD drive, because it couldn't see the drive unless a CD was in it. But if I set it up this way, it does just what I wanted. Thanks!

    And I'm really glad the search function has been restored!
