Last Modified: 2012-08-14

Often, I work in an Excel sheet and should quickly find another *.xls  somewhere deeple buried in my thosends of folders. It woud be convenient just to run a macro which opens this specific folder.
What is the command to open a specific folder (so I can see the content) in a new Explorer Window (file manager)?

Thank you for your help!
