I saw this title on page 32 Vol.14 No.12 and rejoiced - until it didn't work.

I am using Win 7 64-bit. I changed:

%windir%\explorer.exe

to

%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe/root,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}

in the Target field of properties for Windows Exploer.

Did I mistype something?

%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,::{20d04fe0-3aea-1069-a2d8-08002b30309d}

This is what I have.

Thank you so much. Yours worked.

I guess I didn't understand that "root" is actually "e" - still don't, but it worked and I like to keep my libraries real and not virtual.

Thank you again.
