For those that are big fans of the command prompt, it often saves time to be able to open a command prompt from a folder you are currently browsing. There are a few ways to do this.
Only When You Need It
If you will only use this now and then, and don't want to modify your system at all, simply hold down the SHIFT key, and right-click the folder. You'll see the option to Open Command Prompt Here.
Always and Forever
If you use this function often, why not just have it available for every folder? It's very easy using one registryView definition in a new window setting. Copy the following text, paste it into NotePad:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\Open Command Prompt Here\command]
@="cmd.exe /k pushd %L"[/codebox]
Save the file as cmdhere.reg (switch the file type from 'Text Document' to 'All Files' so it doesn't try to add a '.txt' to the end of the name) and then double-click it. If you have UACView definition in a new window active (which you should), allow the script to run, and then approve the registry modification (which you'll be asked regardless of your UAC setting).
