    Getting the folder path real time

    Hi!
    i wanna write a program which can read the path of a folder that the user opens (in win explorer). In other words, when the user tries to open a folder, the program should immediately get the path to that folder. Can this be done? Some help please. Thanks.

    And if I have several explorer windows open, then what?

    What about other ways of navigating the file system, do they count?

    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
