I don't like the Explorer default of not showing the folder structure. So I want the folders on when Explorer launches. Hence the /e flag when launching Explorer.

    To change the default, set HKCR\Folder\shell\(Default) to explore. Underfining said value or setting it to open will restore the default behaviour.
      I did not knew that, thank you.

      But as soon as you use a directory as parameter, you have to use the /e to make it work (on W2K at least)
