How to open programs Via Windows Explorer

You can open programs via windows explorer and make it function as Run (Win + R). The “Address bar” functions as the “Run Command”.

This might be a simple trick, but it might end up saving lot of time.



In the Address bar of the windows explorer type the program name to open the program. For e.g. type “notepad” and press “Enter” to open “notepad”


Also you can open the files in the current folder via specific program via the address bar

Consider that you have a txt file in a folder, you can open the file via notepad by typing “notepad filename.txt”

For e.g. in the below picture we have “lotsinlife.txt” in the current folder. To open the file vial notepad, type “notepad lotsinlife.txt”.


You can do the same with other programs and files.
