Windows Explorer


Recommended Posts

Is it possible to check to see if windows explorer already has the foler open.


ie. lets say explorer has c:\test open already


i want to check to see if its open,

if yes, activate window.

if no, launch activate explorer to c:\test.


right now my macro keeps opening c:\test, everytime....so I end up with many explorers running in the same folder..


can this be done?

You might want to try something like:

If Not Window Title "c:\Program Files\Macro Express3" running
 Open Folder in Explorer: c:\Program Files\Macro Express3
 If Not Program Name "c:\Program Files\Macro Express3" on top
   Activate Window: "c:\Program Files\Macro Express3"
 End If
End If

If I remember correctly, what is displayed in the titlebar of Windows Explorer varies somewhat between the different versions of Windows. And there is an option within Explorer that may affect this. I have the option 'Display the Full Path in the Titlebar' enabled.
