Command Prompt via the Right click menu

This tutorial will show how to add the option to open a folder in the Command Prompt via the right click menu.

It is a small tweak but if you, like me, is often using the Command Prompt in conjunction with the Windows GUI, it can save you for a lot of trouble.

1. Open Windows Registry Run | regedit

2. Navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Classes/Folder/Shell

3. Create a new key called Command Prompt

4. Create a key in Command Prompt called command

5. Paste this in to the content of the string:

cmd.exe /k pushd %1

6. Click the button Ok
