Change Windows Explorer default startup folder in Vista

Changing the default startup folder on Microsoft Windows Vista

By default,when we start Windows Explorer (from the Start || All Programs || Accessories path), it opens showing the user’s default Documents folder. What if we would like it to open at C:\ instead ?

Use the following procedure in order to modify your Vista default startup folder:

  • Click Start, click All Programs and then Accesories
  • Right click Windows Explorer, and click Properties
  • Modify the Target field to read %SystemRoot%\Explorer.exe /n, /e, C:\
  • Click OK.
