  1. Windows Explorer - Single pane

    In XP how do I create a shortcut to have Windows Explorer open to a drive in a single pane.
    Single pane = the whole window with nothing but folders.

    Disable simple tasks in folders view.

    Do this by opening a folder and going to Tools --> Folder Options

    The first option you see there is TASKS

    Tick, "Use Windows Classic folder"

    This will remove the task pane that sits to the left.

    Explorer parameter /n opens folders in single-pane view. Just add it to Explorer shortcut, that should do the trick.
