If you wanted to open a Search for Files and Folders from the command-line, you have a number of options:

To open a pre-configured search:

1. Open the Windows Explorer search manually.

2. Configure the search parameters, including any filtering you desire.

3. Perform the search. (you could Start the search and then Stop it.)

4. On the File menu, press Save Search.

5. Name the file with a .fnd extension, without any spaces in the name or folder path, like c:\folder1\mysearch.fnd.

6. In your script, add a line containing:

<b>c:\folder1\mysearch.fnd</b>

           <font size="+1"><b>OR</b></font>

<b>start c:\folder1\mysearch.fnd</b>

To open an empty default search, using a .VBS file:

Add the following lines to your script:
@echo CreateObject("Shell.Application").FindFiles >"%temp%\FindFile.vbs"
cscript.exe //Nologo "%temp%\FindFile.vbs"
del /q /f "%temp%\FindFile.vbs"

To open an empty default search, using standard commands:

Add the following line to your script: type nul>mt.FND&start mt.FND&del /q /f /a mt.FNDIf your %TEMP% environment variable defines a folder path without any spaces, you could use: type nul>%TEMP%\mt.FND&start %TEMP%\mt.FND&del /q /f /a %TEMP%\mt.FND
