opening folders in UI elements

hi, is there any way that I can open specific folders in non MS software??

 

I have a load of folders named

text_18.06.2022_001

text_18.06.2022_002

etc....

I want to open folder _001 and process the contents then move on to _002 etc.... is there a way to use a list of the folders to control 'Click UI element??

 

or another way to do this?

 

thanks

Yes it is, but it is rarely necessary to open the folder UI. I hope you can make do with the actions in the File and Folder folders to achieve what you have to do.

 

If not, you can check this post out that I found for you:

You would have to create a list of files first, the For each through it with custom selector.
