Exploring My Computer
Many users prefer to have My Computer (and all other folders) open in Windows Explorer. If you think you'd like this too, run Windows Explorer and choose View, Options. Now click the File Types tab and locate Folder. Click Folder to select it and then click Edit.

In the Edit File Type dialog box, click Explore to select it and then click Set Default. Now click Close, and when you get back to the Options dialog box, click Close again. Now close Explorer (choose File, Exit). When you double-click My Computer, it will open in Explorer. If you want to open My Computer as a standard folder, right-click its icon and choose Open.
