CLSID List (Windows Class Identifiers)

Certain special folders within the operating system are identified by unique strings. Some of these strings can be used with FileSelect, DirSelect, and Run. For example:

OutputVar := FileSelect(, "::{645ff040-5081-101b-9f08-00aa002f954e}")  ; Select a file in the Recycle Bin.
OutputVar := DirSelect("::{20d04fe0-3aea-1069-a2d8-08002b30309d}")  ; Select a folder within My Computer.

The "Yes" entries in the last column are not authoritative: the Run function might support different CLSIDs depending on system configuration. To open a CLSID folder via Run, simply specify the CLSID as the first parameter. For example:

Run "::{20d04fe0-3aea-1069-a2d8-08002b30309d}"  ; Opens the "My Computer" folder.
Run "::{645ff040-5081-101b-9f08-00aa002f954e}"  ; Opens the Recycle Bin.
Run "::{450d8fba-ad25-11d0-98a8-0800361b1103}\My Folder"  ; Opens a folder that exists inside "My Documents".
Run A_MyDocuments "\My Folder"  ; Same as the above on most systems.
