Hello, I am trying to make python add in tool to change the current workspace in ArcMap. Obviously I have made this tool in VBA in previous versions of ArcGis but, according to stopping VBA in the new versions I need to make this tool in python. However, this tool asks the user to select a specific directory using browse folder window. Any body know what is the python code that makes the browse folder window. Thanks

I found it. its The pythonaddins module which can be used to Open a dialog box to choose one or more GIS datasets.

you can check the arcpy.da.walk functionality to see if it will help
