I am not sure.
Hey, thnx for your help Anak & Bongo - much appreciated. Now you're gettin' into tech-talk that is out of my league. If y'all persue this for a toolbar command prompt button I would most definitely soil myself!

thnx again & take care.

No, its not that. Here at 7Forums we try to find an elegant solution to problems that anyone from a noobie to an IT tech would find easy to follow.

Its just that I couldn't find any commands to apply the CMD prompt to the toolbar, like you want. It does look do-able. Have you tried yet?

It would be best if you went to the link Bongo posted, and ask Brink what is needed to allow your CMD button to show.

You might have to use Classic Shell mentioned here: Windows Explorer Toolbar Buttons - Customize
As a matter of fact post a reply there, and Brink should reply back.

This will serve my needs until the tool bar button surfaces.

Thnx Anak!

MourningStar,

You might also consider using the free program Classic Shell to see if you may be able to add a command prompt button on a toolbar in Windows Explorer.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi Shawn -

I posted in your Custom Explorer Toolbar tutorial regarding this issue. Regarding the Classic Shell. Hmmm, ... will it interface with Mark's awesome themes that I am using?

EDIT:
Strange - my post over there has been deleted.

I don't know. What type of themes are they?

I would recommend to create a restore point before trying Classic Shell. If it causes an issue, you could do a system restore back to that restore point.

Yes, you post there had been removed since all posts for the same issue needs to remain in it's original thread instead. This is to prevent confusion and for you to have better help.

Type? Gee, I would have to type them as custom themes. One is titled Midnight Glass. Does this answer contain the kind of info you desire?

I would have to know that it would not change the look of the custom themes I use before trying it. I do not like the look of the classic shell, simply looking to add a open cmd window here' button to current explorer.

It might affect it since it's a custom theme.

Creating a restore point before installing and using Classic Shell will allow you to be able to go back to exactly how everything was at that restore point before installing it if it does mess things up where simply uninstalling Classic Shell normally doesn't help.
