    Exploring a folder from start menu

    I would like to be able to have a shortcut to a folder on my start menu or Quick Launch bar - I know how to do that - but when I click it I want Windows Explorer to open in that folder rather than just 'Open' it. So I keep documents in a folder C:Ian and want the shortcut to open Explorer in that folder. How? (I'm using Win 98 at home, but NT 4 at work - if the answer's different for each please tell me both!)

    will give you the nitty gritty.

    Otherwise, just try changing the shortcut target to:<pre>%SystemRoot%explorer.exe /n,/e,c:ian</pre>
