Windows 7 : Let Windows Explorer open my computer by default

May 5th, 2009

The  first time I used windows 7 ,I found the Windows Explorer will open the Libraries by default.

If you want Windows Explorer open “my computer” by default,please hold down the Shift key on your kerboard,then right-click the icon of Windows Explorer and select Properties.


In the next window ,change the Target field from  “%windir%\explorer.exe”  to:

%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e, ::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}


Then the next time Windows Explorer will open “My computer” by default.
