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?

Thanks.

Yes.

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

#NoEnv
SendMode Input
#notrayicon
#InstallKeybdHook
#Persistent
#HotkeyInterval,100
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.
