desktop, my documents & my computer and i'm looking to set it so that it open
up always showing the directory details of my C drive

All you have to do is this...
1. click on say, my documents. Make sure you click on the middle square
in the upper right corner, between the X and _ . Maximize it by clicking
on it, it should look like two squares. Then click the X. The next time
it opens it should be how you left it last.

2. You can leave the min\max square looking button minimized also and
adjust the window by dragging the corner or edge to a specific height
or length. You click the X button to close the window and the next time
you open it it should be how you adjusted it last.

hope this helps

Create a new shortcut on your desktop. Type the directory name you want to
look at in the target box. Save it.
