A Window with a View
If you liked the single-pane version of Explorer that we discussed in a previous tip, you might like to put a shortcut on the desktop that will open the single-pane version for you.
Open Windows NT Explorer and navigate to \Winnt and locate Explorer.exe. Use the mouse to drag the Explorer.exe icon to the desktop to create a shortcut. Now right-click the shortcut and choose Properties. When the Properties dialog box opens, click the Shortcut tab. Now click the Target text entry box and enter
(one space and two periods) to open a single-pane Explorer at the root folder of your Windows XP drive.
