Quickly open a command prompt at a windows folder

Postby Josh Gibbs » Thu Jan 05, 2012 10:36 am

If you use the windows command prompt to work with files it can be a hassle to go through the set of commands to change to the directory that you want to work in.

To quickly open a command prompt at any folder open in an explorer window, hold down shift and right click in the window pane. An extra menu option will be available to 'Open command window here'. Select the option and you will be at a command prompt in the selected folder.
