hello,

we are using "%systemroot%\explorer.exe /e,N:\" to open a window that shows
the whole content of "N:\" (mapped network drive).

Now we need to know, how to open an explorer.exe-window that shows only
selected files and folders, matching a filemask like "?-EDV*" (as it was
possible with "Dir ?-EDV*").

Looking forward to your answers.
Kindest regards

I don't believe there is any way to do that. You can force the common file
open dialog to do actions like that quite easily when programming - but
Windows doesn't really have a way - short of writing either a filter driver
(very complicate) or an explorer shell extension (not much easier) to filter
files like that.
