Windows: add cmd to folder

Yet another windows customization reminder:

Since I frequently have to open a command prompt right from the folder that I'm on in explorer, I'd like to have a context menu entry for folders that does this.

Here's the way to do it:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Folder\shell\Command Prompt]

@="Command Prompt here"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Folder\shell\Command Prompt\command]

@="Cmd.exe /k pushd %L"

Other ways to do it and more tipps in that category can be found here.

same domain, different solution: "copy path" in context menu, great when you need the full path of a document or do not want to click a few times in a file>open dialog:

Ninotech Path Copy is available for free at
