How do I start File Explorer (Windows 8 from Outlook VBA RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using windows 8 and Office 13.

    I want to launch File Explorer (then windows 8 replacement of Windows Explorer) programmatically from a VBA application in Outlook.

    In Windows 7 and prior versions of office I would use sum code like this:

    Shell "Rxplorer.exe /e, C:\foldername,", vbNormalFocus

    Thanks for your help

  • Didn't you miss the initial letter E for an R? I have the same configuration as yours and this works fine for me:

    Shell "explorer.exe /e, C:\foldername,", vbNormalFocus
