    George,
    I'm not sure what you mean by start up positions.
    Do mean the sequence of starting or what?

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    I am refering to the focus at start-up. Currently, the focus is on My Documents and I would prefer it to be on My Computer.

    How does a folder have focus in <big>Internet Explorer</big> at startup?

    My very large mistake. I am talking about Windows Explorer. It was late for me.

    When Window Explorer starts, on the left is a window called "Folders" and on the right is a window called "Names". When my Windows Explorer starts, the cursor is positioned in the "Folders" window on My Documents. I want it to start with the curson positioned on My Computer. I think this is done by placing some letters after the "explorer.exe" in the Windows Explorer shortcut on the desktop.

    Try creating a shortcut with target
    <code>
    %SystemRoot%explorer.exe /e,/select,C:</code>
