When working in Windows, I have the following in my vimrc, which I find very useful to start Windows Explorer:
nmap <F11> :!start explorer /e,,%:p:h<CR> imap <F11> <Esc><F11>
Pressing Win-E is an easier way to start Explorer, if you have a keyboard with the Windows key.
To get it to select the current file, use the following:
nmap <F11> :!start explorer /select,%:p imap <F11> <Esc><F11>
To combine options to windows commands just put a comma between them. So to combine the examples given above do:
:!start explorer /e,,%:p:h,/select,%:p
For OS X users:
nmap <Leader>f :!open %:p:h<CR>
Just a little bit more useful:
nmap <F11> :silent !start explorer /e,,%:p:h,/select,%:p<CR>
