How to open a folder in Python command after it was been created automatically?

How to open a folder in Python command after it was been created automatically?

How to open a folder in Python command after it was been created automatically?

(OP)
Dear Gents,

Below script creates a previous folder based on the date.

1. The question is how to go or open that folder automatically after it was been created.
2. How to create two folders with different drive or path based on the script below.

path = "G:" "H:"
current_time = yesterday.strftime('%Y\%b %Y\%Y-%m-%d')
command = "mkdir {0}".format(current_time)
os.chdir(path)
os.system(command)
os.startfile(path) <== this only open the root folder not from the newly created one.

thanks.

CODE -->

path = "G:" "H:"
current_time = yesterday.strftime('%Y\%b %Y\%Y-%m-%d')
command = "mkdir {0}".format(current_time)
os.chdir(path)
os.system(command)
os.startfile(path) <== this only open the root folder. 

Of course.

You need to build a String or Path object for your newly created directory and pass that to os.startfile().
