exploit or currently undocumented behavior of OpenBrowser() used to launch file/associated program.

stumbled upon in response to related discord inquiry (and found some old Execute File for AGK request threads that had no resolution):

tested in AppGameKit Classic 2022.04.01 on WIN10 with various file types (html, exe, gif, agk/agc, txt, et al).

may work with parameters for exe's that accept them?

please respond with other configuration successes or failures, or ideas on how we can expand usefulness.

otherwise, i can't say that i've seen this usage of the command on the forums

Note, ChooseRawFile() may be limited by OS per the help file (write your own )

first post code updated to include:

which, when broadcast to my phone, did what was expected. on WIN, the OS suggested a phone app (which i didnt bother to set up yet).

thanks for the idea, blink! many new doors are opened with this hidden behavior of OpenBrowser(), which i've confirmed:
