    Under Windows 7 I setup a shortcut link in Taskbar to open WindowsExplorer with a pre-defined directory
    and auto-expand and mark that directory in left side tree view with the following command:

    %windir%\explorer.exe /n,/e,C:\data

    It works fine in Win 7.

    When I try to setup the same cmd/shortcut in TaskBar of Windows 8 it does not work resp. does work only partially.

    Yes, on the right side the content of C:\data is shown.
    But on the left side tree view the tree is NOT expanded and the directory C:\data is NOT marked.

    How else can I achieve auto-expansion + marking in Win 8 analog to the Win 7 command?
