    Do you mean when you open Windows explorer.?
    That would be
    C:\Windows\explorer.exe /n, /e, C:\(here the folder of your choice)

    But if you mean , for example, if you open up, say, a .doc. This would open in Word, or Open office, whatever you have installed. The default folder would be whatever you had chosen in the configuration of Word.
