How to Load a Browser

5 posts in this topic

How do I load a browser and go to a specific page and not to the home page. When I use the run command It loads the browser's home page. I have a shortcut on the Desktop that will go to this page when I click it but I can't use the run command because it is not a Exe. file. This seems like a easy thing to do but I can't find any way to do it.

Try the ShellExecute() function. Like this: ShellExecute("http://google.com").

Hi, tim3117, welcome to the forum. Check the example here for assistance on _IECreate. That should suffice for you. Alternatively, if you want to use the shortcut on your desktop, you could do something like this.

Run("rundll32 url.dll, FileProtocolHandler " & "path to file")
