    Link button to the desktop?

    I have RR as my shell, but what Im trying to do is launch Explorer from a button, but it directs to "My documents" folder instead of the desktop.

    I tried opening the "Show desktop" file in notepad thats in quicklaunch,
    this is what I see

    [Shell]
    Command=2
    IconFile=explorer.exe,3
    [Taskbar]
    Command=ToggleDesktop


    Any way to create a button to Open the desktop instead of My documents?

    Here you go barry, just download this file and have road runner run it. It opens explorer.exe then immediately sends you to the desktop.

    and dont worry its virus-free

    ok when you open explorer.exe and see the explorer bar whats the order of the folders? It should only go down once... from my documents to my computer. My also have soemthing to do with the speed the events are happening. You're using an epia right?
