Restarting Explorer.exe Forces "my Documents" Win

3 posts in this topic

Hi Gang,

I'm having trouble getting AutoIt to restart Explorer. B) After explorer is closed (this works fine), Explorer is restarted, and a window I didn't ask for is also created. :whistle: The window in question is "My Documents" and doesn't respond to @SW_HIDE either: :angry:

Run(@WindowsDir & "\Explorer.exe", "", @SW_HIDE). Does anyone know how to just get Explorer to come back up and without displaying any windows?

AutoIt 3.00.101 and Windows 2000 SP4

Thanks you very much for any and all help,

Christian Blackburn

Try launching it from ComSpec maybe? Something like:

Run(@ComSpec " /c start explorer.exe", "", @SW_HIDE)
