Explore the current drawing directory

Here is a menu macro that will open Windows Explorer to the directory of the current drawing in AutoCAD.

^C^C(startapp "explorer" (strcat "/e, "(getvar "dwgprefix")));

Create a new command in the CUI, add this macro, give it a name and create an icon, then drop this in your QAT. Now you have a quick way to access the current drawing directory.
