    {
        var objShell    = new ActiveXObject("shell.application");
        var objFolder;
        var ssfPROGRAMS = 2;
        
        objFolder = objShell.NameSpace(ssfPROGRAMS);
        if (objFolder != null)
        {
            var objVerbs;
            
            objVerbs = objFolder.Self.Verbs();
            if (objVerbs != null)
            {
                objVerbs.Item(0).DoIt();
            }
        }
    }
</script>


VBScript:


<script language="VBScript">
    function fnFolderItemVerbDoItVB()
        dim objShell
        
        set objShell = CreateObject("shell.application")
        if (not objShell is nothing) then
            dim objFolder
            dim ssfPROGRAMS
            
            ssfPROGRAMS = 2
            set objFolder = objShell.NameSpace(ssfPROGRAMS)
            if (not objFolder is nothing) then
                dim objVerbs
                
                set objVerbs = objFolder.Self.Verbs
                    if (not objVerbs is nothing) then
                        objVerbs.Item(0).DoIt
                    end if
                set objVerbs = nothing
            end if
            set objFolder = nothing
        end if
        set objShell = nothing
    end function
</script>


Visual Basic:


Private Sub fnFolderItemVerbDoItVB()
    Dim objShell    As Shell
    Dim objFolder2  As Folder2
    Dim ssfPROGRAMS As Long
            
    ssfPROGRAMS = 2
    Set objShell = New Shell
    Set objFolder2 = objShell.NameSpace(ssfPROGRAMS)
    If (Not objFolder2 Is Nothing) Then
        Dim objVerbs As FolderItemVerbs
        
        Set objVerbs = objFolder2.Self.Verbs
            If (Not objVerbs Is Nothing) Then
                objVerbs.Item(0).DoIt
            End If
        Set objVerbs = Nothing
    End If
