The Open Command Prompt Shell Extension is a simple way of opening a new command promt from the context menu
The Open Command Prompt Shell Extension adds an "Open Command Prompt" menu item to the context menus (right-click menus) in Windows Explorer so that you can open a command prompt in the selected directory (or directories) or in the current directory that you are viewing.
If you use the Windows command prompt frequently then you might have found the lack of a context entry allowing you to open a command prompt baffling. Thankfully the Open Command Prompt Shell Extension is a fine solution. It will add context entry allowing you to launch the command promt in any folder. This is an easy and simple solution to an annoying problem and apparently it has several advantages over other similar programs. Available for Windows 2000/2003/XP/Vista.
