Windows Explorer Annoyances

It’s annoying that every time I open Windows Explorer, I have to wait for it to render the 60 sub-folders and 65 documents of “My Documents,” even though I know I want to browse immediately to some folder on my C: drive. Here’s one solution: change the default location in the command line of Explorer.exe. Details here:

This will change the default page to the root of “My Computer,” which at least on my computer, opens significantly faster. An explanation of the command line options can be found here:
