Here’s a nifty trick for creating a shortcut to a custom view in Windows File Explorer. Normally File Explorer opens up to this view:
A couple of clicks will get you to your documents or other folders, but why not open up to exactly where you need to be.
Well, you can and here’s how:
Right-click the Desktop and select New , Shortcut.
In the command line box, type: explorer /e,/n,/root, c:\My Documents
You’d probably be better off copy/pasting since it needs to be exact. It should look like this:
Then hit Next. Name your shortcut, then hit Finish.
The shortcut will appear on the desktop.
Click to open.
You could also make a shortcut to your C drive:
explorer /e,/n,/root, c:\
As you can see, you can put in any path you like where you see the “C:\ ” at the end of the line. You could set up Explorer shortcuts for any frequently used folders and or drives.
