How to Add Command Prompt to the Right-Click Menu in Windows Explorer

Majority of us open command prompt by going to Start> Run but here’s an easy way to start it. You can add an option in the right click menu in Windows explorer to start command prompt. Here’s how you do it:

Firstly, open notepad and paste the following:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\CommandPrompt]
@=”Command Prompt”
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\CommandPrompt\Command]
@=”cmd.exe /k cd %1″

Now save it as “commandprompt.reg” anywhere you like.
Now close notepad and double click on commandprompt.reg that you created.
It will ask you whether you want to add information to the registry, simply click OK.
That’s it! Now you can right click on any folder and start command prompt.
