JSI Tip 2370. Another way to configure 'Cmd Here'.

When browsing a folder in My Computer or Windows Explorer, you can open a CMD prompt, at the folder, by right clicking the folder and pressing Cmd Here, if you run the following .reg file:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

\[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Folder\shell\Cmd Here\]

\[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Folder\shell\Cmd Here\command\]
@="cmd.exe /k pushd %L"
NOTE: For Windows NT 4.0, change Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 to REGEDIT4.
