I need to launch explorer from my program and in the opened window to select some file(s).  I once saw some program do that but I forgot the command line parameter.

Can you please remind me?

"Here are some examples. The following command line would start Explorer with the Docs folder open and the file Today.doc selected: explorer /n, /e, /select,c:\docs \today.doc."
