I use the desktop shortcut {C:\Windows\explorer.exe "D:\"} (without the wiggly brackets)
to make Windows File Explorer open at my 'D' drive.
I does this OK, but 'D' appears at the bottom of the page
resulting in the need to scroll down to see the content of the drive.
Yes although the complete content does appear on the right of the page,
I'd still like to see 'D' appear at the top on the left.#
Is there any way to achieve this?

I don't think it is an easy process. A better way might be to right click D and select the option to make a shortcut to the start menu. Alternatively, you could drag it to the desktop and make a shortcut there.

You could right-click on D Drive in the navigation pane, and select Pin to Quick Access

That would get it almost to the top.

I'm not sure I am understanding your post though. You shortcut will open the contents of Drive D , so why do you also need the Drive letter displayed further up the Navigation pane?

Thanks to both responses. The quick access toolbar proved to be the best option.
Many thanks
