whats the window class of explorer windows?

3 posts in this topic

Hi,

I want to write a script that restores the last used explorer window. With explorer i mean the application to browse my harddrives etc. not the internet!

I think it should be the easiest and least fragile way to call up these windows by their window class, like this:

WinSetState("[CLASS:whatevertheclassnameis]", "", @SW_RESTORE)

The question is, what should i replace "whatevertheclassnameis" with. I tried "explorer" and "explorerframe" so far.

Thank you!
