Open Folder


This command is similar to the Open Folder in Explorer command. "Open Folder" opens a window with only the contents of a folder displayed. "Open Folder in Explorer" opens a window with two panes that displays the Folder tree view on the left and the contents of the selected folder on the right.



Script Editor > Expand Explorer Category > Open Folder



The Open Folder command provides a shortcut to folders on the computer. Set up a hot key or other trigger to instantly go several layers deep in the File/Folder structure.


One example might be to create a shortcut to the Startup folder to periodically make adjustments. Or create a shortcut to the Cookies folder to see how it has grown after a day of Internet usage.


Another option would be to monitor a Temporary folder full of old downloads or email attachments that might require a periodic cleaning. In short, this option provides a quick way to get to the folders most frequently accessed.


Enter a folder name and the full path or click on the Browse button to search for the desired folder. Click the OK button when finished to save.
