go0b3r,

I am not sure just what you want, but this will open a folder and make it the current folder:

FileChangeDir("C:\more\and more\even more")

I think that might be what you are looking for.

try this

Run("C:\Windows\EXPLORER.EXE" & " " & "C:\Program Files\")

edit replace "C:\Program Files\" with the path of the folder you wish to open.

as a script to open a folder

$initial_dir = @ProgramFilesDir & "\AutoIt3\Examples\My-Stuff\Test-Files"
$var = FileSelectFolder("Choose a folder.", "", 1, $initial_dir)

lots of choices here...

$folder = YOURFILEORFOLDERGOESHERE
$var = FileGetShortName($var)
Run(@Comspec & " /c start " & $var, '', @SW_HIDE)

that's just how i'd go about it
