I believe if you search you will find the answer :idiot:

FileOpen ( "iexplore.exe", o )

mouseclick ("left", 197, 107, 1)

send ( "www.mail.yahoo.com{ENTER}", 0)

It messes up at the first part:*(, Instead of opening internet explorer, it makes a file iexplore in the autoit3 folder and it just continues on with the other things in script. Can someone help me with that plz? Thanks

Don't use FileOpen.. Use Run, look in the C:\ProgramFiles\IEXPLORE\IEXPLORE.EXE if I remember correctly. (Been a while)

Seeing as ur new, maby you dont know but theres a great little search button on the top of the forums, I found this by doing a search for internet explorer

You could do it this way

Run( "iexplore.exe")
WinWait("Your Homepage - Microsoft Internet Explorer")
mouseclick ("left", 197, 107, 1)
send ( "www.mail.yahoo.com{ENTER}", 0)

But this way is alot better and more reliable.

Run ("explorer.exe" & " http://www.mail.yahoo.com","",)

Hope this is what your looking for, welcome to the forum.

Remember theres always more than one way to skin a cat :idiot:

Happy scripting

I'll explain this command:

Run ("explorer.exe" & " http://www.mail.yahoo.com")

Basically that's calling the program itself, BUT adding a command as it calls it. I think that's known as the 'command line' of a program.

I.E. If you were to call 'Diablo II.exe' (a game) and add the option '-ns' it would remove sound from the game. Calling it + the option would look like this:

Run ("Diablo II.exe -ns")

Simply seperate the program from the commands with a space.

Hope that explains it a bit better.

That's one reason it's my favorite scripting language :idiot:

I guess you'd call it that?
