Action after opening a folder

Is it possible that when I'll open a folder a program or file will open automatically??

Example : I open Program Files and Windows Media Player starts automatically!

Post #1 Sorry but I don't understand this.

What program or programs are you trying to open?
How to edit Explorerframe.dll

Do you still use Resource Hacker?

I think he wants a certain program/s to open when he opens a certain folder/s, not that that's his problem.

Could be, but why? I just use the shortcut or quick launch. We need some response from the OP to clarify I think.

I think the OP wants to open a specific application to open automatically whenever he opens a specific folder, sort of like Autoplay for folders.

I guess the example rephrased would be,
If I open Program Files folder, I want Media Player to start automatically. How do I do it ?
