Open file and check its content

Hello,

Is it possible to download file > open it > check the content?

There is an addon to catch last downloaded file, but that is just for file details and I could not find anything similar.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,
You could use the ‘Shell Commands’ addon to execute any shell command to real the contents of the file.
In this example, I have a Word document on my Desktop, and I read the contents using the ‘more’ command on Windows.

And the output is stored in the action’s output parameter:

In your case, just replace the path to your downloaded file, and the command if you need to.

Also, if your file is a PDF, you can use the PDF Reader action in the ‘PDF Actions’ addon to read the contents directly.
