Open Command Prompt at a Particular Folder Directly from the Folder’s Context Menu

Its sometimes really annoying to reach a directory in windows using a command prompt. Typing cd again and again is really boring.

Here is a simple solution. Configure the right click context menu to add an option to open the command prompt at a particular folder.

To do this, Copy paste the following lines and paste them in notepad. Then save it as command.reg

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTDirectoryshellCommand]
@=”Open In Command &Prompt”
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTDirectoryshellCommandcommand]
@=”cmd.exe \”%1\””

Now simply double click on this file to put these settings in registry. After this whenever you’ll right click on any directory, it will show an extra option “Open With Command Prompt”. You can also change this text simply by modifying the fourth line in above script.
