    How can I get explorer to start up and show a specific folder? It starts up now and shows a deeply nested folder and its a pain in a** to have to get out of this area - how can I get it to start up showing a different folder or the last state it was in when I closed it?

    Right click your explorer icon/program exec.
    Select properties
    Now, in the top (target) box, add something like this :
    %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /n, /e, C:\

    The last portion (C:\) is the one you are looking for.for example, perhaps you want it to show a folder called "Games" which is in a C: drive folder then type
    %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /n, /e, C:\Games
