Puzzle of folder name

I'm writing what I thought would be a trivially easy macro, but I'm baffled at the outset. The start point is with a WinXP folder activated. I use the command

 

Variable Set String %T1% from Current Folder Name

 

But T1 is getting set to a folder that I don't even have open, namely C:\Program Files\Macro Express3 !

 

Even if I follow the above command immediately by a Text Display, T1 is shown to have this bizarre value.

A folder you have open with Windows Explorer is not the Current Folder. The Current Folder is a hold over from the DOS days and is less and less often used by Windows programs. You can set the Current Folder using the Change Directory/Folder command.

 

Thanks Kevin. Meanwhile I tried 'Set Value to Topmost Window Title' and that did the job OK.
