Stupid Windows trick of the day: For a few months now I've been working on the same project, so I created a Windows Explorer icon that I wanted to start in the same directory every time I opened the Explorer. After a little testing and rooting around on the web here is the Properties -> Shortcut -> Target command I use to start the explorer, getting it to start in the desired sub-directory, showing the Folders Panel on the left side:

%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,C:\Projects\BigProject\documents\phase1

If you want to know what this means, search on the web for "windows explorer command line options", or send me an email.
