Open command line from here

Post by TheLostOne » Wed Sep 30, 2009 4:34 pm

Hello!

It would be nice to have the option "open command line from here" or similar when right clicking on a result, whether it's a file or folder.

Thanks & best regards

You can add a context menu item to open a command prompt for folders by adding the following registry entry:

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\Command Prompt\command]
@="cmd %1"
Save the above as a .reg file and run it.

You can do the same for files with the following:

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Command Prompt\command]
@="cmd %1"
The option to use additional command line options when running an item from "Everything" is on my "Things to do" list..
