Is there anyway to add an “Open Command Prompt here” entry to the right-click menu in Windows 2008?
You don’t have to. Simply hold the SHIFT key down before you right-click and you’ll see the “Open command window here” menu option appear on the right-click menu.
If you want to make this more permanent to save you having to hold the SHIFT key down then you need to edit the Registry:
- Start Regedt32
- Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\cmd
- Rename or delete the Extended key and hey presto it’s there all the time.
