Windows 7: Command Prompt in Explorer Toolbar?

Just thought of something and tried it. It's still not very useful but I can make my toolbar button open to the current folder but you still have to have a folder selected for it to work, so if your in a folder without any subfolders or don't select one first then it won't work.

To do this edit the reg file and change @="cmd.exe /s /k pushd \"%V\"" to @="cmd.exe /s /k pushd \"%V\" && cd.."

To add both commands ask if needed.

When you say WHOOSH, does this mean it's too complicated or just not what your after?

I do know it's not exactly what you wanted sorry, I was really hoping I could get it working but what you want I don't think can be done with a simple reg hack (maybe an advanced one) and I couldn't find any software to do it, but I think it will require someone to program a shell extension or something like that.

If your using shift + right click then I think Option 4 would be a good idea, at least it would save pressing shift and the icon will make it stand out more.

No, no need to apologize. In fact your efforts are much appreciated and deserve applause. I am somewhat disappointed that no one here has chimed in to give you props for what I see as better-than-college-try.

I just r-clik and it's there, no shift required. It will suffice.

thnx Duzzy!

Is there a preferred Option? I can assist with more detail and step by step instructions.

Out of curiosity did you use my instructions to do this and did you include a icon?

My preference is for a simple 'for dummies' solution. Basically, an 'install-finished', 'run-and-done', minimal-clik/typing option.

No, the r-clik w/o shift option works for me when I am in a folder window with a hard path displayed in the location bar. I used post #2 to implement. Also, if I type 'cmd' in that location bar, the cmd. prompt opens at said location. Surprise! However, I do have to use the shift-key if in that folder via 'Libraries' navigation. -thnx.

Update : I found this. Totally idiot-friendly: clik the link, run, install, done! No shift required, will work with Libraries path and includes the elevated option. Now, if only I could get this on the toolbar (sigh).

Final Update : I have come to believe that this issue would have been resolved long before I posted this request. I have therefore decided to simply delete the windows explorer bar altogether. Thnx to all!
