File Browser V1 (Python)

Currently looking through some of my older projects and seeing if any of my recent Python learning could be used to make them better. Possibly make the PDF merge idea better with some GUI driven fun rather than command line, and building on my previous GUI attempt. To do this I decided I would need a file explorer/file browser window.


#!/usr/bin/python3
# geektechstuff

# libraries to import
from tkinter import *
from tkinter import filedialog

# creates Tk window
root = Tk()

# hides the Tk window
root.withdraw()

# updates Tk window; without this the open file browser stays open
root.update()
file_to_open = filedialog.askopenfilename()

# currently used to display the file path/name to the selected file (making sure the file is selecting)
print(file_to_open)

#closes Tk window
root.destroy()


tkinter_open_file
