Hi Nancy

Go to Programs>Accessories, right click on the WE icon and select
Properties. Type or copy/paste the following into the 'Target:' box to have
WE open with
the C drive expanded:

%systemroot%\EXPLORER.EXE /e,c:

A new Desktop shortcut for WE can be created with the same command.

Also have a look at the following article:

"Windows Explorer Command-Line Options"
