On Vista, Win+E opened went straight to My Computer, but now, on Windows 7, it goes to Libraries.

Is there any way to change this?

First you'll have to download autohotkey, create a new script called something.ahk and then put this code into it:

SendMode Input
SetKeyDelay, -1
#e:: Run::{20d04fe0-3aea-1069-a2d8-08002b30309d}

Alternatively, you can just run this compiled version, which you'll have to use task manager to close cause there's no icon:

Thanks! The compiled version worked. All I had to do was run it. Placing in startup folder.
