I just want to... Yes open a folder into a window. I didn't know how to say that :) Any way yes that's what I want todo. A better example would be like if you open MY computer and double click on the c: drive... A window comes up showing the contents of C:  How to you open a window like that through visual basic 5.0?

Use the Comon Dialog control and:

CommonDialog1.ShowOpen

There are a bunch of flags that you can set to control how the box behaves. You can set it to accept/reject long file names, the file must exist, etc. You can also preset the type of files that it will show, etc.
