Difference "explore" vs "open" a folder RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • When I want to open a folder I have used both of these. These both seem to do the same thing. Am I missing something?

  • Depending on what's inside what you're looking at, Open may start an autostart program from the media, whereas Explore will do exactly that: explore, without invoking the startup program, such as is often found on installation media.
