At least on Windows XP, the following Run commands work:

... opens My Computer
.. opens the Documents and Settings folder
. opens the current user's profile folder

Other dot combos will spawn an explorer.exe process that immediately dies.

This doesn't work for Windows 7 (and probably Vista). It opens the user's home folder.

In Windows 7, press Win+E to open "My Computer"

Win+E opens "My Computer" in XP also.
