Im looking for a way to have focus on a specific file when I open windows explorer. I have a list of files in my app when I left click on a file I have "open containing folder" an this works but I want to have focus on that specific file. Is that even possible?

Exceute the following code :
            Process proc = new Process(); 
            
            proc.StartInfo.FileName = @"EXPLORER.exe"; 
            
            proc.StartInfo.Arguments = @"/select, c:\temp\yourfile.txt"; 
 
            proc.Start();

Open in new window
