If you still use the DOS prompt regularly then this setting
creates a new right-click menu option to open a command prompt at
the selected directory.
To do this follow the next steps:
- Open the Registry Editor click on the Start button on
your taskbar, then click on Run and type "regedit"
and click on OK to start the regedit utility.
- Create a new sub key called "Command" under the main key
(i.e. [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\cmd]). Change the
value of "(Default)" within the key to equal the text you
would like on the right-click menu, for example "Command
Prompt" (see picture 1).
- Create another new sub-key under the key created above, named
"command" (i.e. [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\...\cmd\command]). Change
the value of "(Default)" within this key depending on your
operating system to equal (see picture 2) either:
cmd.exe /k cd %1
- Now right-click on a folder and the new option of "Open
Command Windows Here" should be available.
