    Does anyone know why when you open up windows explorer it goes to the start menu and is there any way to change where it goes?

    Right-click the shortcut, select Properties, and modify the target to something like:

    <code>%SystemRoot%explorer.exe /n, /e,c:</code>

    For a full explanation, see MSKB 130510: Command-Line Switches for Windows Explorer.

    I would guess that you are opening up Windows Explorer by right clicking the Start button and choosing Explore. This will always open at the Start menu. It is the same effect as if you right clicked a folder in Windows Explorer and chose explore.

    If you want Windows Explorer to start from another location then you need to create a shortcut to start it with, and then follow Leif's advice above.

    If you use WinKey + E it should open showing My Computer.
