Open it on Your Drive
Let's say you open Explorer using the Start menu. Right-click Start and choose Open. When the Start menu window opens, double-click the Programs icon. You should now see the Windows Explorer icon. Right-click it and choose Properties. Click the Shortcut tab and then click in the entry box labeled Target. The box will display something similar to

%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe

Click again in the box to make sure the current line is not selected. Now, move to the end of the line, type a space, and add

/e

Your Target line should now read

%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e

Next, click in the Start In entry box and delete the current contents. Now, type in the new drive letter. For example, if you want Explorer to start in drive D, type in

d:\

and click OK to close the dialog box and save your changes.
