I'm extending the browse-url function I use so that it can select a specific

I use

   (w32-shell-execute "open" url)

to open a URL via my "default" URL protocol handler (Firefox).
I can launch IE via
(defvar win32-internet-explorer "C:\\Program Files\\Internet 
 "*Location of Internet Explorer")

 (start-process "Internet Explorer" nil win32-internet-explorer url))

but I'd like to know if there is a shell command to open a URL (via DDE) if
IE is already running, that is, is there something like

   (w32-shell-execute "open-in-ie" url)

that I can use even though my default browser if Firefox?

You can create one yourself in the Registry. Can't remember exactly what to do right now but looking at HKCR\http\shell\open might give you an idea. But be careful of course when editing the registry!
