Invoke Web Sites and Local Files Via Command Line



  • If I can do this in Firefox to open Bing:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe www.bing.com

    Why can't I do this in Vivaldi 1.11.915.3, my favorite browser?:
    C:\Users\NE1I\AppData\Local\Vivaldi\Application\vivaldi.exe www.bing.com

    Ditto for local HTML files. Please advise.



  • I just tried it and it seems to work for me. You might need to prepend file:///C:/ onto the front of fully qualified local html filepaths though.



  • Look here to see what switches vivaldi can use. Well, some need chrome/chromium, but common ones could work.

    Try appending --new-window=www.bing.com after vivaldi.exe ... maybe will work.
    Maybe could work even for local files --new-window=file:///C:/full/path/of/the/file/local.html but I'm not really sure.
