comment Control to select (not open) a file on windows
@James See the answers below and Rahul's correct interpretation. The design aspect is mimicking common interface for choosing a file and seeing the path. The control will cause a standard Open dialog to appear, but the question is about the display of the control to pick and show the result.

comment Common/accepted name for “dropdown menus” and related kin?
@Matt The goal is to see if there is a single accepted name that unambiguously differentiates these when describing UI elements in a specification document. Based on the details I'm finding and adding to this answer, it appears that you are correct: there is no unique term across all platforms and technologies.
