Switch it On
A number of readers have requested information about the Windows NT Explorer switches. Thanks to reader R.B. for pointing us to the complete list of Explorer switches from Microsoft.

The basic syntax is

Explorer [/n][/e][,/root,(object)][[,/select],(sub object)]

/n opens a new single-paned window (as we reported in a recent tip).
/e opens Explorer in the standard view at the current folder.
/root,(object) opens at the specified root level.
/Select, Folder tells Explorer which folder gets the focus.
/select,(filename) tells Explorer which file gets the focus.
