    You don't have to do this!

    Just do the following!
    VB Code:
    1. Dim sPag As String
    2. sPag = ""
    3. Shell "Explorer.exe " & sPag, vbNormalFocus

    Change sPag value to any web site's url! It will load the IExplorer for the web site url!

    I hope I helped you!

    Re: Help with webbrowser

    I wouldn't use ShellExecute if I want the page to open explicitely in IE. It will open the page in default browser. My default browser is Opera.

    You can use both Shell (like DarkX_Greece said) And LocationURL (like static said) to open the page in IE.
    VB Code:
    1. Private Sub Command1_Click()
    2.     Call Shell("EXPLORER.EXE " & Chr$(34) & WebBrowser1.LocationURL & Chr$(34))
    3. End Sub
    But if you need more control over the new window, use Penagate's code. (Use IE.Navigate2 WebBrowser1.LocationURL)
