  1. If you right-click on the explorer icon and select "Properties" you should find that is says "%windir%\explorer.exe" for the target. Change this to "%windir%\explorer.exe /root,E:\". Alternatively, create a new shortcut pointing to that program.
  2. I have tried this, rebooted, and it still does not work. I have rechecked my typing over and over. It still does not work. Any idea what I am doing wrong?
  3. I can only point you to the article here from Microsoft (despite what it says , this applies to all versions of Windows), and suggest that you open a command prompt and play a bit. I did check out the suggestion that I made and it worked perfectly on my system.
