Tutorial :File Access takes me to command prompt rather than Explorer


Whenever I go to my command prompt and type a "c:\temp" or any other file/directory, it takes me to the command prompt rather than the file explorer. Can somebody please tell me how I can fix this so that all file/directory access from cmd takes me to the file explorer. I have a Win2k3 64bit machine. Has this got anything to do with the 32bit/64bit explorer ?


To run Windows Explorer from command prompt you must type name of the executable:


or just


To open a certain folder, pass the path as an arguments. Details here:

See examples.


To open Explorer at the directory where your cmd is operating you can use

start .  

and at a parent directory you can use

start ..
