What I want to achieve: opening the HTML part of an email with the program associated with HTML files i. e. a browser.

I would like to be able to use the start command or protocol handlers in the attachment list view's open with command window:
- "start %s"
- "microsoft-edge:%s" or "read:%s"

"start" just executes the default action for the provided resource (file, folder, ...?) i. e. it opens the file with the associated program.
"protocol handlers" are a way to run Windows apps.

There might be a restriction that prevents the protocol handler, especially microsoft-edge, from accepting local paths.
