How to open Explorer in My Computer instead of in the Libraries

1. First, unpin the existing Explorer icon from the taskbar. To do that, right click it and select "Unpin this program from taskbar."
2. Now make a new Explorer shortcut on the desktop. Right click an empty area, click New | Shortcut and in the location box, type: %windir%\explorer.exe /e
3. Click Next.
4. Give it a name (e.g., Explorer) and click Finish.
5. Right click the new shortcut and select "Pin to taskbar."
6. Delete the one that's on the desktop if you want.

Now when you click the Explorer icon on the taskbar, it will open to Computer instead of to the libraries.
