    Anyone knows how to make it open "This PC" by default? Thanks.

    Thanks but unfortunately it does not work.

    In Win8:
    - Win+E opens This PC
    - "explorer.exe /e," in shortcuts makes them do the same

    Now the same trick works for shortcuts but Win+E opens "Home" with those "delegated folders".

    It only adds computer drives to Favorites for me. Unfortunately it's not what I wanted but thanks anyway for trying to help.

    Save as REG file. Needs to uncheck 'Hide Extensions ...' in folder options.
