    Yes for sure, but the tool do that for you automatically and it also changes both Windows Explorer and pinned explorer.

    Does anybody know how to change the default folder from Libraries to Computer through CMD or PowerShell scripting? I want this done automatically (as well as another bunch of stuff) on new installations. I use a lot of VMs, and I like to keep all the settings the same on all of them as welll.

    I use Windows7manager for this. Just point the folder and you are good to go.

    Link is broken. Some CMD script would be great.
