Opening an explorer window from the folder select dialog

Ever used a program that showed one of the folder select dialogs and you wanted to open a normal explorer window showing that folder? There is no button for that and no entry in the popup menu, but you can add one:

Create a new shortcut in


Enter “Explorer” as the location and name of the shortcut.


Now you have an “Explorer” entry the Send To submenu of all popup menus which in the case of a folder opens a new explorer instance for this folder.
