At least you must explain this by far more precisely. I never heard about a feature to change a "default target folder" (what does this mean in Windows??) in explorer??
There is no "default target folder" in Xampp and "explorer" is nothing that has anything to do with Xampp. Its definately impossible to understand what you are doing there.
