What should I add to the following command (in shortcuts.xml) so that Notepad++ would open the containing folder and also select the current file?

<Command name="Open containing folder" Ctrl="no" Alt="no" Shift="no" Key="0">explorer $(CURRENT_DIRECTORY)</Command>

Thank you.

The following command opens the folder and selects the file. I'm still looking for a way to open the folder maximized. &quot;C:\Windows\Explorer.exe&quot; /select, &quot;$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)&quot; Thanks. –  Yaron Jul 1 at 18:38
