followhyperlink "c:\"

that will open the window explorer  in c:

followhyperlink "C:\Program Files"

I had a need to make it within a form for a security reasons. User chave to be directed to a specific folder and ONLY that folder. I did not want to expose any other directories or explorer functionalities.

I agree with capricorn1,

<Also whne I get inot files I want to be able to open that specific file. >
...then all you have to do to open the file is simply right-Click the file and select: Open
