  1. Click Start | All Programs | Accessories.
  2. Right click Windows Explorer and click Properties.
  3. Change the path in the Target field to point to the folder you want Windows Explorer to open to.
  4. Click OK.

    I´m running Vista Ultimate and the shortcut to Windows Explorer in the Startup menu has disappeared. Searching for “Windows Explorer” yields nothing. What could have happened and how can I get Windows Explorer back, please?
