Make Win+E Open the Folder of Your Choice [Autohotkey]

22 Giu/09

Reader Raghav writes in with a small, but useful tip: using AutoHotkey, you can re-map the Win+E shortcut key combination to open something other than My Computer.

The default Win+E action opens the My Computer folder in Windows Explorer—not nearly as useful as opening your user folder, or even the desktop folder—but with a simple AutoHotkey line you can change it to whatever you would like. Simply create a new AutoHotkey script and add something similar to the following line, substituting your preferred folder as the argument.

#e::Run explorer.exe {FolderPath}

You’ll need to launch the script and keep it running for the hotkey to stay active, but it’s a useful idea to turn a shortcut you might not be using into a quick way to pull up your preferred folder. For more, check out how to turn any action into a keyboard shortcut, knock down repetitive email with AutoHotkey, or get the best Windows 7 shortcuts in XP or Vista. Thanks, Raghav!
