Hi,

 

In order to make windows explorer open in a certain folder, you need to go to its properties, I think.

But I don't have that option, and searching the help files - they don't mention anything about customizing windows exlorer.

When right-clicking on the explorer icon on the bottom task bar, there is no "properties" option, only a list frequent folders, an option to open the explore and option to pin/unpin from the task bar.

 

What do I do?

 

Thank you.

See this link below.

*Make sure you have no explorer folders open and then simply hold the shift key down and right click the icon then go to properties.

What folder are you trying to find?  

 

If you right click on the Start icon a menu will open with the option for Windows Explorer, click on this.  From there you should be able to access your folders.
