What’s the difference between Internet Explorer and Explorer?

From the navigate bar of either, you can type a web URL like www.msn.com or a local file path like “c:\Windows”


In this post I showed how VFP can use the web browser control easily.


Try opening a few instances of IE and a couple of Windows Explorer, then run this code. All the windows of both types are in the same collection.



LOCAL oShell as Shell32.Shell


FOR EACH oWindow as SHDocVw.WebBrowser IN oShell.Windows

    Does SHDocVw stand for Shell Document View, which is a unified approach to both IE and Explorer windows?

  2. A customer wanted to run code whenever a user started Internet Explorer.


    A possible solution…
