    Doing some automation with Windows Explorer

    I'm trying to use the explorer.exe to automated some copy / create / move / etc. functions (i.e. file manipulations). The problem I am having is that as you can directories / drives, the caption for the Explorer window changes and since it doesn't know where the window is anymore. I sure I'm missing something simple but my simple mind isn't working right now. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

    change the tag to

    multitag "Exploring*"
    "$C:\WINNT\Explorer.exe"

    Thanks for your response. But I am working in XP and the caption never says Exploring. Do you know of any other solutions.

    In that case set the option in explorer to show full path in title bar and change the tag to following:
