Posted: 5 Feb 09

If you are running windows 7 and hate the "Libraries" default on your task bar, here is how to change it to default to "My Computer".

  • Right click the icon for Windows Explorer on the task bar.
  • Right click Windows Explorer
  • Left click Properties
  • Set the target to be:

  • CODE

    %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /root,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
The icon will now default to the My Computer menu instead of libraries.
