Open Selection

▪ Open Selection opens a notebook whose name is given by the current selection.
▪ If no path name is given, Mathematica will look for the notebook in the current directory (i.e., the directory containing the current notebook).
▪ On a Macintosh, absolute path names begin with the name of the device (e.g ., a hard drive), and are separated by colons (device : folder : folder : notebook ).
▪ If you use a relative path name, Mathematica will find notebooks contained in directories of the current directory.
