    Explorer switches

    Can someone point me to a source of switches for use when invoking Word, Excel etc. - i.e. starting Excel with no worksheets.
    Similarly Explorer. I know
    %SystemRoot%explorer.exe /n,/e,c:
    will open Explorer in C: - anything else?
    TIA

    check in Help - some of the startup switches are there for word. Not sure on excel's help.

    Got it - thanks.
    You gave me the clue - searching on startup leads quickly to the switches. (Searching on switches gives a zillion answers.)
    Help within Explorer appears to lead to the main Windows help - and no immediate offerings there.

    Re: Explorer switches

    Hi Lief:
    I've attached a couple of tips re Explorer & Word switches in a Word document to preserve formatting (one is a table). I didn't know how else to preserve the formatting for a table.

    Hope this helps.

    Now that is useful, many thanks to you both.

    Perhaps Woody could include it in a newsletter?
