      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.
      ^!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:
      > ^!Shell CommandLine (added in v4.82)
