    When you are going to start a new thread/question, don't start by typing
    anything in the subject. Create an unambiguous message body first using
    only complete sentences. Then make a very short title for the body's
    content/question.

    You want the question and all of its essential elements to be in the
    body where the respondent will answer. You want the subject to be very
    'terse' reflecting just the gist of the body in a few words.

    Your subject is way way way too long and Windows Explorer is not even
    mentioned down here in the body where we are talking.

    > Is there any way to make it open with C:\XYZ\ expanded, for example?


    Yes there is. Configure it in the program's properties.
