    Explorer Command - Access "My Computer" Location

    Just found something new today, not much though, but in case anybody else did not know, and this should work for Windows 7/Vista as far as I know...

    Code:
    explorer.exe,
    This in command prompt will bring you to your My Computer/Computer location :)

    Or you can just use:
    Code:
    explorer,
    Since it's in an environment variable location and will compare by the filename to infer that it's an executable.

    Re: Explorer Command - Access "My Computer" Location

    Are you sure you're using the comma? That's strange

    "explorer" by itself takes me to Libraries.

    Edit; through some tests:
    Code:
    explorer/
    Takes me to My Documents.

    Edit:
    Code:
    explorer&
    Takes me to the Libraries too.

    Found a few others that navigate to My Computer and Libraries, but not any other locations.

    Re: Explorer Command - Access "My Computer" Location

    AHA!!!! Added the comma as well... One of the first things to remember, usually the first forgotten... Them importance of syntax

    Re: Explorer Command - Access "My Computer" Location

    Hi, the use of the comma (,) is very useful, say you want an OP to navigate to "lan Settings" under connections in Internet options, from an elevated cmd prompt OR the search bar in Vista /Seven:-

    Cmd prompt:-
    C:\Windows\system32>Control Inetcpl.cpl,,4 (applies to most windows apps)
    By default the first window is General then ,,4 for Connections if you wanted Programs ,,5




    Just makes it easier for the poster to go where you want them, oddly enough I do not see this much, certainly at TSF.
    Corrine, usasma and reventon say thanks for this.

    I know about the comma's for control panel files. I just never took initiative to see whether or not explorer.exe had any interpretable command line arguments or parameters in it's environment. :)
