Really struggling with this simple thing.

I need to open an explorer at a specified location and maximise it after it has been opened.

I have tried many variations of the following.


I almost got it working with WinGetTitle BUT it uses an 'illegal' character for autohotkey ....

WinGet, old_active, ID, A
Run, explore C:\Users\Nathan\Documents\Test FDA
WinGet, new_active, ID, A
if(ahk_id %new_active% != ahk_id %old_active%)
WinMaximize, A

Run has an option to get the PID of a window try using that and your if statement needs a little more work ;)
