O.P. trying to open My recieved folder
Hi I made a simple menu item that should open My received folder or any folder. I couldn't find a way.. So I did this

function OnEvent_MenuClicked(folder,Location, OriginWnd)
{   
var Shell = new ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell");
               Shell.Exec("C:\Application.exe");
               return"";
               
   
   
}

I made a VB applicaion to open the folder ... is there an easier way to do it without using shell? when I try a normal link like Shell.Exec("C:\Myrecieved\");
it dosnt open it. Please let me know if theres an easier way to this thanks!

Well, the ShellExecute function should do the trick
JScript code:
Interop.Call("shell32", "ShellExecuteW", null, "open", "C:\\Myrecieved", null, null, 1 /*SW_SHOWNORMAL*/);

Also, notice that "\" is an escape character in JScript so you need to use double backslash "\\" instead ;)

Instead of hardcoding the path to the folder get it from the registry. Take a look at CookieRevised's reply to Where is Recieved Files Folder stored in the registry?
