When I open Win Explorer by clicking the shortcut on my desktop, I get the
usual folders display in the left pane:
My Documents (expanded)
My Computer
My Network Places
Recycle Bin

I'd like to get that same display except I'd like My Computer to be expanded
(ie as if I clicked on the '+' sign to expand the folder). I'd like this to
happen automatically when I open Win Explorer. I think there might be a way
to do this by modifying the Properties of the Win Explorer shortcut, but I
can't remember it.

thanks for any help.
