How to add a Command Prompt option to your Windows XP Explorer Right-click context menu

Filed under: Microsoft — spiderwebwoman at 12:19 pm on Friday, November 30, 2007

There’s a process that I run at work quite often that has to be run from a Command Prompt window. I found a quicker way to get to the Command Prompt by adding it to the Windows XP Explorer right-click context menu – I used Method #3, as I don’t have Microsoft Powertoys or Send to Toys on my PC.


Edited to specify Windows XP – see comment below about Vista.

In Vista, it is “built-in”. Shift-Right Click on the folder and it is in the context menu. It only took Microsoft 20 years to add this to their OS’s…

I probably should have specified that this is for Windows XP – I’ll go back and edit the post.

Thanks!
