Open Command Prompt From Any Folder

Published in multiple categories by Steve Sinchak with 28,899 views

Here is a quick time saver that I use all the time: Hold down the Shift key and right click on any folder in Windows 7 and select Open command window here. A command prompt will open with the current directory set automatically.

Man, this comes in handy at the moment!
I always typed "cd " in the command prompt. And then dragged the map into the prompt and then hit Enter.
But this is indeed a lot faster :)

Ralph, there is no download, it's built into Windows 7. Well, at least I didn't install anything and it works for me! (Win7 Ultimate 64)
