I have an Explorer.exe shortcut in my quick launch menu & I've been using XP SP1 for however many years it's been out now. Every time I open it, I minimize My Documents (to avoid a scroll) maximize My Computer & maximize the F:\ drive (my primary HDD for non-application related files) and I am tired of it. It's three clicks & two seconds I don't want to waste twenty or thirty times a day.
So... I have no idea how to go about relocating the location Explorer starts in...?_?... So if somebody could enlighten me as to how this is possible & maybe explain it, that would be great!
And as a side note, a long time ago my PC used to skip over the XP welcome screen & just go straight into my (only) login. Any way to get the back too? To clarify, I'm aware I can switch it to the classic little box where I type in my username & (if I had one) password but I didn't have either one when I first installed XP. If it isn't possible (or even if it is - I've kinda gotten used to it at this point) does anybody know how I would go about modifying the XP Welcome Screen with a different placement of the icons & a new background?
I tried googling around about this but I think they're just a little bit obscure & unimportant to be popular questions.
I always overlook the easy ones. Thanks for the help. It was just a matter of making a shortcut to the F: drive. Of course now there's an alternate 3 clicks to make... Oh well. At least I've scratched the itch.
