JSI Tip 0824. Create an Explorer shortcut to open My Computer.

In tip 057, we introduced Explorer command line switches.

The \{object\} parameter can use ::\{CLSID\} syntax (see HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\\{class id\}).

To create the subject shortcut, type the following into the Target:

explorer /e,/root,::\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D\}
