For $i = 1 To 2
  $pid = Run('explorer ' & @WindowsDir & '\Fonts')
  Sleep(20000)
  ProcessClose($pid)
Next

This might work instead - it uses the process id (pid) retrieved from the Run function, so that the window title of the fonts folder doesn't matter.

Got it from the AutoIt help file > Function reference > Process management

i tried the script

it opened the font folder

then after 20 sec.. it restored the windows (maximized to restore mode)

doesn't closes the font folder

its there only

only the size of the windows is changed..

i am shocked

i have attached both the screenshot (initial and final)

first one is the open stage

second one is after 20 sec is passed

That's weird...

Btw, i tested both scripts and mine didn't work, but the one MHz provided did the job just fine...

Run('explorer ' & @WindowsDir & '\Fonts')
Sleep(20000)
WinClose('Fonts')

Maybe if you tried quotes instead? (" instead of ')?

And does it work with any other folder?

I'm sorry, i'm out of ideas... can't help you there.

Try searching the AutoIt forums, perhaps you'll find an answer there. Since it's happening on your pc and not on mine, i'm guessing it's related to the way you set up Windows or AutoIt, but that's as far as my knowledge goes...

Good luck!

You have your titles set for full path to be shown. So I will use a substring option to cater for it

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)

For $i = 1 To 2
  Run('explorer ' & @WindowsDir)
  Sleep(20000)
  WinClose('WINDOWS')
Next

For $i = 1 To 2
  Run('explorer ' & @WindowsDir & '\Fonts')
  Sleep(20000)
  WinClose('Fonts')
Next

Here's an alternative script to Autoit.

explorer %systemroot%\fonts
ping -n 10 127.0.0.1>nul
taskkill /fi "windowtitle eq %systemroot%\Fonts" /im explorer.exe
taskkill /fi "windowtitle eq Fonts" /im explorer.exe
