How to start WebStorm and open a project from Windows Explorer?

Is there a way to start WebStorm by double-clicking on, e.g. the .idea directory, from within windows explorer?
I usually have all my work in a project folder, and some sub folders might contain webstorm projects.
I find it cumbersome to copy the path in windows explorer into the clipboard, start ebstorm manually and then tell it manually to open the project folder I have in the clipboard.

Thank you and best regards,
