the following code in my ebm file open up the window explorer :

function browse()
hWndCalc& = Shell("C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe", 1)
end function

the problem is the user interface is gone after the window explorer get started. I want the users be able to get back to the user interface. I am doing research on the FINDWINDOW  and SHOWWINDOW function. Hopefully I will something helpful.
