    Open, Explore, Find

    When I Right Click on Start, I get the choice of Open, Explore, Find. Now when I Left click on any one of these choices, the default location (for any of the three) is

    C:WINDOWSStart Menu.

    I would like the default to be C: instead.
    Must I make a change in the Registry to accomplish this???

    Why not use the "Windows" key + e for Explorer, "Windows" key + f for find (search), and the "Windows" key for Open. No changes are required and will work on any machine that has a Windows keyboard and running Windows 95, 98, Me, NT, 2K and XP.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Oh sure, I know about the use of the Windows key
    but I prefer to use the mouse. In addition, because
    of a defective KB I am now using a non-Windows keyboard.

    What I want to do is make it easy to use the mouse. There
    has to be a way to change the default when right clicking
    the Start icon. The present default is worthless.

    Looks like no one has a solution to this problem. Some
    how I thought that I had done something to make this
    happen and that at some earlier point in time the
    default had been C: instead of C:My Start.
