Is it possible to open a file via File Explorer in Ruby?

BontieFernandes asked in Ruby

For example: if you open Microsoft Word, you can open the File tab and Open a file. This opens up the File Explorer and allows you to choose a .doc or .docx file to open. appvalley

Is there any way to prompt this type of File Explorer in Ruby? I tweakbox want the user to be able to choose a file via the File Explorer. My code will then change the chosen files directory so that it ends up in a specific folder. tutuapp

Thanks in advance for any solutions.
