        Bob: Coincidentally this just came up in Lotta's explanation of how and
        why she uses HTA files.
        ^!shell "path-to/filename.exe" will cause the file to be launched in the
        program which "owns" that extension if that's the program you want to
        display the photo.

        If not:
        ^!shell "path-to/program.exe path-to/filename.exe" will for most
        programs launch it pointing to the desired file.
        eg:
        ^!shell "path-to/i_view.exe path_to/photo.jpg" will launch it in IrfanView.
        If spaces are present in any of the path-to's or file-name.exe's they
        should be quoted.

        from HELP:
