Open Windows Explorer to My Computer (instead of Libraries)

I heard my friends say Windows 7 Explorer opens to Libraries page automatically. They have been used to see “My Computer” page in Explorer like below.


No Fear. To open Explorer to “My Computer” by default, follow the steps below.

  • If you pinned Explorer to the task bar (by default Windows 7 does it), right click on Explorer, and right click on “Windows Explorer”. Select properties.


  • On the properties page, copy & page this on Target text box: %SystemRoot%explorer.exe /root,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}


  • Click Ok.

Try clicking on the Windows Explorer icon on the task bar.  Did you find your old love of “My Computer” page?
