YOu don't, unless the site allow directory browsing, and has no default page set up. If no default page is setup, then the directory will open when you access the site
do you want to open a local dir at startup of ie??
then define as startpage in ie
file:///c:/yourdir

no that's not what i wanna do

theres a site called http://www.asdjf;kjasf.com/directory/

i wanna see what's in the directory, but there is an index.html file so i can't see it

is it even possible to do it?
"list files" seems to do something, but i don't know how to use it

If they don't want you to see it, then you can't

that is an asp component (must be uploaded to the server, and then accessed thru active server pages and  your browser) it can not be run locally
from the software.txt included with the download
>>is an ASP component for obtaining web-server's directory
 structure. It allows you to list web-server's files and directories via web-browser
If  you  know anything about asp coding, here is the code from the files.asp
<%Response.Expires=0%>
<html>
<STYLE TYPE="text/css">
<!--
A:link {text-decoration: none; }
A:visited {text-decoration: none;}
A:active {text-decoration: none;color:red; }
A:hover      {text-decoration:underline;color:red;}
-->
</STYLE>
