Explorer.exe additional option

I'm not sure this is documented anywhere on MSDN but thought it would be useful here as it's not listed on the ss64 site.

explorer.exe .

will open a file explorer window at the current directory.

Good idea! I have now added this to the run commands page

Hi Simon,

I figured you might want to add it to the Explorer.exe page doc.   Since there are already other great examples there.  It won't let me add the direct link or else I would post it.

Re: Explorer.exe additional option

I read my original message and I apologize as I wasn't clear.  In CMD if you do explorer.exe .   it will open up a file explorer window of the current directory the user is in.

i.e.  in CMD   C:\Users\>explorer.exe .   would open up the C:\Users File Explorer window.
