Vista: Command Prompt Here

Many times I like to drop to a command box to get my work done. Being able to drop to a command prompt from the current folder structure can make things very easy. Vista includes this ability out of the box.


In XP, you had to have a power tool to do this. In Vista, it is already there.

From explorer, hold shift and right click on the folder where you would like to open the command prompt. Then select Open Command Window Here.

In explorer, you can do this from the left Favorite Links pane or from the main right panel.
