How can I browse a folder of files in Intellij?

I'd like to open a folder of files without having to create a project. How can I do that?

My use case:
- find a project online, download it and unzip it into a folder
- now I want to browse said files in Intellij really quickly

I currently do this by creating a project in intellij, which means I have to go through the whole wizard and click several times. Is there an easy way to open a folder without having to do as much work? In particular I'd love to be able to do this from the command line.
