    ToolBar & Windows Explorer (97:SR2)

    Is there an icon for envoking Windows Explorer in the toolbar?

    I have an application that is limited to XL only and would like to have the capability of envoking/utilizing WExplorer once an icon is selected.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    John

    Why not put Explorer on the Windows Quick Launch bar where it can be started quickly from any application. Just drag a shortcut to explorer to the Quick Launch Bar and drop it.

    Many keyboards nowadays have a Windows key (between Ctrl and Alt). Windows+E invokes Windows Explorer.

    I have the XL app published through Citrix ie no desktop is available to users just XL itself. Adding an icon seemed the prudent thing to do.
