How to open a file browser in a MATLAB script?

85 views (last 30 days)
When I run a MATLAB script, I would like to use a function in the script that would open a Browse window to list all files in a specified folder. Then I would like to click on one of the files in the list (or browse to a different folder), similar to how I can do it in Word to open a file to select it, so that I can read its contents in the script.
Is there a way to do that in a MATLAB script?
