From a folder to CMD-window ?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to right-click in a folder in Windows and select a menuitem "CMD-window" and then end up in the directory (=folder) in the command window !

    Is there a way to do that ?

    Best regards KSor, Denmark

  • This does not seem to be a development-related: maybe you could ask it in the Windows Answers Forum at the following address


    Anyway, in Windows Vista and 7 (I cannot remember if this works in older versions too) you could open a command prompt in a folder by holding the SHIFT key and right-clicking on the folder icon: click the "Open command window here" and you'll get the result.
