Add CMD to Right-Click Menu of My Computer

Power users typically need to drop to CMD prompt quickly. This registry hack places the command prompt in the context menu of My Computer.


1. Open up Notepad, and copy the following:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Command Prompt]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Command Prompt\command]
@="cmd.exe"

2. Save the text file, and rename it to “XP_CMD_MyComputer_Context.”

3. Then merge it into the registry by double-clicking it.
