Request an option in "Classic Explorer" settings to allow the focus side (left,right) to be selectable.
Currently when an explorer window is launched the focus is set to be on the right in the "files pane". However, in XP the initial focus is on the left (navigation pane).
It would be very helpful to have an option in the settings which would allow the choice of which side to open on.
As you can see in the graphic, the initial location is s:\ which is gray on the left. This location was specified in the shortcut to open explorer. It would be great if the focus could be on the left where it is now gray.
