Originally posted by: brooklyn cabin What I am looking for is a way of quickly jumping to folders that are not visible on the screen.

For this, I have a command (currently written in C++ but originally a Dragon command). You're going to want to name this command with some fairly obscure trigger preface and give it a list of target files and folders:
Explore <FilesFolders>

the list will consist of "aliases to" files/applications and folders:

App Data

See Drive

D Drive

Taxes Folder

My Novel


unless you want to use a DVC command (which can be done but is a little more complicated) the code would look something like this:

   Select Case ListVar1

      Case "See Drive"

         ShellExecute "C:\"

      Case "D Drive"

         ShellExecute "D:\"

      Case "Taxes Folder"

         ShellExecute "D:\Taxes\"

      Case "My Novel"

         ShellExecute "D:\Novel\Novel.DOCX"

      Case Else

         TTSPlayString "not yet implemented"

   End Select
