How to open Windows Explorer in specified folder

  DenDan 01:04 26 Jan 06

Currently Windows XP Explorer opens in Explore Mode and defaults to open the My Documents folder.
Could anyone please tell me if there is a way that I can get Windows Explorer to default to another folder instead of My Documents when I open it. e.g. C:\, as was the case in Windows Me.

Sys. Spec. :
OPERATING SYSTEM Windows XP Home Edition (SP2)
CPU Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz

Thank you in advance...
