Explorer.exe Command-Line Options/Switches

I forgot them again but sometimes they are handy.
 
 
 Option            Function
   ----------------------------------------------------------------------   
   /n                Opens a new single-pane window for the default
                     selection. This is usually the root of the drive that
                     Windows is installed on. If the window is already
                     open, a duplicate opens.

   /e                Opens Windows Explorer in its default view.

   /root,<object>    Opens a window view of the specified object.

   /select,<object>  Opens a window view with the specified folder, file,
                     or program selected.

   Examples
