    Changing file explorer target to “computer” windows in windows 8 enterprise system

    hi, i have been using windows 8 enterprise evaluation for 8 months. Recently i installed windows 8.1 in my laptop there, when i click on file explorer i get “computer” window instead of libraries! SO, i decided to change the file explorer target of my enterprise evaluation just like, windows 8.1 preview. Is it possible to do? if so, show me how to do.

    1)Well, that very simple process. Changing the target would resolve your issue!
    2)First of all, right click on the file explorer which is on the taskbar
    3)Again, right click on the “file explorer” folder
    4)Click on properties option
    5)In properties → Go to “Shortcut” tab
    6)In shortcut tab, you will find Target option
    7)In target → Paste the following code
    %windir%\explorer.exe ::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
    8)Finally click on Apply → OK
    9)Try clicking on file explorer from taskbar.
