I was wondering how we can change the Win-E key combination to another target besides the default C:\.

I've tried changing the shortcut in Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Windows Explorer to %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe "C:\My Folder\", in case Win-E references this shortcut, but that did not help.

Any ideas?

The easiest thing you can do is set up an AutoHotKey script:

(I am no expert here, but this should work)


For example

#e::Run calc

will start calculator when the Windows Flag+E are pressed.


For your specific case, Copy and paste this:

#e::RUN Explorer.exe "c:\MY Folder\"

and save it as anything with a .ahk file extension. Next, install AutoHotKey and then run the file. It should intercept Windows Flag+E and launch what you want.
