I found your reply to a recent question in PC Advisor very useful: add /e, to the target of a Windows Explorer icon in order to open the target in a given folder, e.g. :\WINDOWS\explorer.exe /e,C:\MyFolder. I presume that this is an MSDOS command. Is it? If so, I wonder how many of these commands are useful and where I can find them. Could you run an article on them in PC Advisor or could you recommend a book to read? An immediate thing I would like to do in WordPad, is on Open for the Dialog Box to list All Documents(*.*) rather than Rich Text Format(*.rtf). I would also like to increase the number of previous documents opened (given under File) above four.
I use this feature to open shortcuts to Explorer in the directory of my choice. If you create a shortcut to Explorer on your Desktop, then right click on the shortcut and select Properties. Select the Shortcut tab and enter the string in the box labeled Target.
e.g. %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /n,/e,"C:\Temp" will open a new Explorer window with the C:\Temp directory selected.
recap - Useful link!
