Here’s a simple way you can run Internet Explorer from the command line…

Create a new text file that contains the following line:

CODE

@start “” /b “C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe” %*

Rename the file e.bat

Copy this file to your profile folder

QUOTE

C:\Documents and Settings\your_account_name

Now you can open a command prompt window and type the following

CODE

e http://www.trap17.com

This will start Internet Explorer and open the URL for http://www.trap17.com
