from win32com.shell import shell, shellcon
folder = win32api.GetTempPath()
desktop = shell.SHGetDesktopFolder()
shell_folder = desktop.BindToObject(folder_pidl, None, shell.IID_IShellFolder)
items = [item for item in shell_folder][:5]
## print (items)
shell.SHOpenFolderAndSelectItems(folder_pidl, items, 0)
