Hi KingSencat,

What do you want to do?

Use the ShellExecute() API instead of Shell():

Option Explicit

Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long

Private Const SW_HIDEWINDOW = &H80
Private Const SW_SHOWNORMAL As Long = 1

Private Sub Label10_Click()
    ShellExecute Me.hwnd, "Open", "C:\Windows\HackingDigitalCrew\Security\FindNot.pbk", 0&, 0&, SW_SHOWNORMAL
End Sub
