How Do I Collapse A Windows Explorer Tree?

I have a number of hard drives on my computer. I use one specific drive for all of my programs (C) and one for all of their output or data (D). Each time I open Windows Explorer the tree for C is expanded showing all of its folders. How can I keep the C drive collapsed since I am seldom looking for anything in the C drive and it takes up space I need when I expand other drives and want to see it all on one screen?

Sorry to be so slow but I didn't get notified that anyone had responded.

Where should I paste this path? I looked in the shortcut under properties and didn't see a path stated.

Sorry to be so slow, but where should I paste this path. Currently my shortcut Target reads: C:\WINDOWS\explorer.scf. When I change it to
C:\%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,/select,c:\
it says it is not a proper path. Am I missing the trees for the woods in the way??

Still need help on where to paste this solution?

Thanks.

not c:\%systemroot%, just

%systemroot%\ etc etc

Thanks to both of you. I tried to find the Microsoft help VOG pointed to, but I must not have used the words they liked. brundle, dropping the c:\ solved it.

Again, thanks to everyone.
