Right click for Command Prompt

Add the following entries to your registry - you'll be able to right click and open any folder at the command line.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\command]
@="Command &Prompt"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\command\command]
@="\"cmd.exe\" /k cd \"%1\""

    I want to remove items from the run command box instead of typing a command with a right click. How do I get RID of things I typed incorrectly in RUN and now just won't go away.

    this "tutorial/hack/tweak" is extremely vague in how you are supposed to apply it. if it were more specific and easy to understand it might have gotten a better rating

    This tutorial isn't very clear. It helped me, but it may not help other people. First of all, my technique of doing this requires that you can see file extensions. To do this, go to control panel, make sure you're in classic view, (on the left you can change it) and click on folder options. Click on the view tab and scroll down. Uncheck the hide file extensions for known file types checkbox and hit apply or ok. To do the tweak, make a new file somewhere by right-clicking in a folder and clicking new, then click text document. Name it whatever you want, but name it with a .reg extention. Right-click on it and select open with, then select notepad in the list and hit ok. Type in the following: (not the dashes, they're only to seperate what to type in and what not to type in) --------------- Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTFoldershellcommand] @="Command &Prompt" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTFoldershellcommandcommand] @=""cmd.exe" /k cd "%1"" --------------- Now hit Ctrl-S, close notepad, and double click on the .reg file. Click OK. You can now delete the .reg file. You're done!
