Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

- amend the filepath

Code:
Sub jpg()
    Dim FILEPATH As String
    FILEPATH = "C:\Users\yongle\Pictures\whatever.jpg"
    Shell "RunDLL32.exe C:\Windows\System32\Shimgvw.dll,ImageView_Fullscreen " & FILEPATH
End Sub

Thanks but on my Windows 7 it just opens the JPG in a Windows Photo Viewer (not full-screen) window :(
