alias userfile return system\userlist.ini

works perfectly fine, but whats the stuff about using "" in filepaths?

In case of spaces in the path, it (the path) would need to be quoted.

~ Edit ~

Quotes are usually needed when using commands dealing with paths and/or file names with spaces .. /run /splay /play /write /writeini etc.

you can use " \$+ path \$+ " or you can use \$qt(path) . just wanted to point that out

Actually things like /run and /splay that take the last parameter as a filename don't need quotes. Quotes are only needed to surround filepaths that are somewhere in the middle of the expected parameters, eg. /write and /writeini. When it's the last parameter there's no ambiguity about where the filename ends so they're not needed.

True, I was just thinking of any commands that need a file, should've thought of that.
