Re: How to open external file with Mapkey

I tried this tip to open my Chrome web browser and it works, but it does not become the main window.  On the monitor, it opens behind Creo.

Can I make it open in front of Creo?

Hi Kevin

I tried it with Chrome web browser - it is work perfect. Chrome was main opened window
(my OS - Windows 7 64bit)

Re: How to open external file with Mapkey

I see the problem.  I ran the mapkey with Chrome already open and so what happened is that a second instance of Chrome opened and did not become the main window.

If I close all Chrome windows it works as you described.

I wish the command prompt window with the black background did not stay open.  Any ideas?

Thanks,

Kevin

Re: How to open external file with Mapkey

Try this to have the command prompt window close.

This example opens Google Chrome.

@echo off

C:\Users\kbradberry\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\

start chrome.exe

exit

Hi Kevin

For your mapkey you can set  and combine any of batch command (open / save / set custom variables / rename etc.) - your new mapkey Will be perfect and usefull.

 

In my example I want to show how you can open external file.

 

Thanks for comment
