It is super simple to launch IE from a command prompt. But hey, if you do not know how, it may not be so easy to find. Went looking online for the answer and was surprised it was not a well documented process. So here is the process.
You actually have to launch the executable and you can use the address as the first parameter.
On my system it would look like this…
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" www.itproguru.com
Notice the quotes in the path… This is required due to having spaces in the path names
if on a 64 bit OS and want to run Internet Explorer in x86 mode just change the path like this…
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" www.itproguru.com
The Simplest way is
with this you don't need to know it it is a 32 bit or 64 bit os
I was stuck on getting a specific URL to open, never would have thought it was so simple. Thanks!

I tried the code but I guess since I have firefox as my default browser it opens a tab on my current session. Is there a way to open up IE 11? I also specifically wrote the IE.exe
