Change directory in current explorer window?

Recommended Posts

What is the simplest way to change directory’s in the current explorer window via floating macro-menu.

- Open Folder to "C:\xyz" always opens a new explorer window to the given path.

- Can this be done without using the clipboard to paste a path…


Goal: Create a custom floating macro-menu for the graphics department to navigate their hierarchy of folders more efficiently using one explorer window.

There is an example of using controls with Windows Calculator in either the sample file or in the examples section of ISS’s website. The concept of controls is difficult for some but once you ‘get’ it you will find them very simple and useful.


Also the command you need to change the directory is in an unintuitive place. It’s actually in the Text Type command and it’s the option to send text to a control.
