    My fault, I thought you wanted the properties. Here's how to get what you want!! Enjoy.

    Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim x
    ' Opens MY Computer
    x = Shell("c:\windows\explorer.exe /e,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}", vbMaximizedFocus)

    End Sub

    I am still working on the bin and network for you. Maybe tomorrow.

    Here's for the Recycle Bin.

    Private Sub Command2_Click()
    Dim x
    ' Opens Recycle Bin
    x = Shell("c:\windows\explorer.exe /e,::{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}", vbMaximizedFocus)
    '
    End Sub
