How to open a folder?

Hi, how are you?

I want to get a bunch a files downloaded to a folder and once the download is done, I want to open the same folder where they were downloaded. The folder where the files are downloaded is not a static path, meaning I previously ask the user where he/she wants that folder to get created. How can I proceed with something like this?

Thanks in advance!

Hi @ mbertuzz,

use send hotKey windows + R to your desktop then type into “YourFoleder”

Please don’t do it this way unless you absolutely have to. That method is slow, inefficient, and buggy.

Instead, I would suggest using the Start Process activity.

Here’s an example: Test_OpenFolder.xaml (3.8 KB)
