Make Pinned Explorer Shortcut open to My Computer

  1. Right click on the pinned Windows Explorer taskbar icon, then right click on Windows Explorer in the Jump List and click on Properties
  2. In the Shortcut tab, make sure that the field box to the right of Start in is empty.
  3. In the Shortcut tab and to the right of Target, type or copy the path (code) for the location below that you want the Windows Explorer icon to open to instead, then click on OK. (see screenshot below)
    NOTE: You can do this for any item that you know it's {CLSID} registry entry for. You can also specify a specific folder e.g. :
    %windir%\explorer.exe /n, /e, /select, C:\somefolder
For "my computer" -- %windir%\explorer.exe shell:MyComputerFolder
