In vista this use to go to where my user profile is located c:\users\me (me being my user name). In Windows 7 it goes to the libraries folder just like the win +e shortcut and the explorer shortcut under acessories. However those have fixes. I want to know if anyone has found or hacked the registery to set it back to the user folder. I did find out that the switch in the registery still refers to showusers like vista but it points to the libraries folder.

Thus far, I haven't found a way either but I did find a way that works ok for now.
Just add the folders you need to the Favorites section on the left of Windows Explorer by right-clicking on the header for Favorites and select "Add Browser Location" and/or just use the libraries.
You can just set a library to only display the contents of one folder so it isn't really much different then viewing the folder normally.
