Hi Mike,

You need the FFI package. Assuming you are in Windows
Win32Shell>>shellExplore: aPathString gives you an example to open the
Windows explorer on a path. This can be tailored to open your
favourite web browser.

There is an alternative in the OSProcess and CommandShell packages
which I never used myself.
