Do you know how i can do it using WshSpecialFolders object.

I have started the following code:

Dim oShell, oSpFolders

Set oShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set oSpFolders = oShell.SpecialFolders

I tried the following code to access a web site in favourites, but it doesn't work. Will you please fix it for me.

Dim oShell, oSpFolders, i, strExamen
   
    strExamen = "Examen - Home Page"
   
    Set oShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    Set oSpFolders = oShell.SpecialFolders("Favourites")
   
    For i = 0 To oSpFolders.Count
        If oSpFolders.Item(i) = strExamen
            oIE.Navigate2 "http://WWW.examen.com"
            While oIE.Busy
                'wait for the page to load
            Wend
            GoTo GotExamenHP
        End If
    Next i
