    Opening a Command Prompt from Windows Explorer

    With previous versions of Microsoft Windows NT, to open a command prompt, the Cmd.exe command was always associated with Windows Explorer folders. The old technique was to go to the Windows NT Explorer Options/File Types and associate the File Folder item with Cmd.exe. With Windows 2000, you can use the Registry to activate this feature.

    To enable the command prompt feature:
    1 - Create a new text file and call it "command.reg" (select any appropriate name for the .reg file).
    2 - Right-click the file and select Edit.
    3 - Copy and paste the following code into the file.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    @="Command &Prompt"
    @="cmd.exe \\\"%1\\\""

    4 - Save and close the file.
    5 - To merge the file into the registry, right-click the file and select Merge.
    5 - When prompted to confirm your intended actions, click Yes.
    7 - When informed that your actions were successful, click OK.

    To confirm your actions:
    1 - Right-click on a folder.
    2 - Confirm that an item labelled Command displays.
    3 - Select that item which will open a command prompt in that particular directory.
