Internet Explorer commands from Run

August 24th, 2006 by Zack Whittaker

Sorry if this is really widely known knowledge but something rather useless I’ve found… or something potentially rather cool.

If you go to Start, Run, and type in iexplore then you can directly navigate to a webpage. Essentially, the iexplore bit is the equivilant of http://. That’s the useless bit.

If you type in iexplore but instead of typing in a web address, you can open up Internet Explorer to an FTP folder. If I typed in iexplore ftp.microsoft.com then basically it’ll open up the FTP folder for Microsoft.

I guess we learn something new everyday :)… and you’ve all learned I’m a total n00b 😛
