    Is it possible to associate Windows-Logo-Key plus some English letter with
    some iconic shortcut, or remap "Windows-Logo-Key plus E"?

    I search the whole disk for Windows Explorer (WE)'s shortcuts. Then I
    change all of their properties so that c:\temp is WE's default folder. I
    click on each of them and WE is launched with c:\temp as the default folder.
    That is good. But if I hit "Windows-Logo-Key plus E", WE is still launched
    with Desktop as default.

    Someone may recommend to associate some other keys instead of
    Windows-Logo-Key. The beauty of Windows-Logo-Key is that it does not
    conflict with alt/ctrl/shift and function keys which are used by many other

    Any help is much appreciated.

    In short, that behavior can't be changed. This and other keyboard shortcuts
    are hard-coded and while some can ber remapped, thier default behavior
    cannot be edited.

    Hi Rick,

    Would you kindly name one or two of these Windows keys that can be remapped
    and also let me know how to remap? I will remap those key to a Windows
    Explorer shortcut that has c:\temp as the default folder. Thanks in advance
    for your help.

    There are many commonly available key remappers you can find with your
    preferred search engine. Most are freeware, I do not have a specific
