Bash Question

batch for opening explorer window in path

I've been toggling between commandlines and windows explorer recently and I'd prefer a smoother transition. So, if I could open an explorer window to the current directory it'd be nice, and easier to shut down a pile of windows.

I tried ex.bat

cd "%~p1"
start "" "explorer.exe %~dp1"

but the result opens to default location. I feel like I'm close and it's a syntax error , OR it has an interesting solution. Thanks for any help!


I believe what you are looking is following

start "explorer ."

. represents current directory.

Or you could simply use explorer . without start command
