Command Prompt in Explorer Toolbar?

I would like to have the command prompt option in the explorer toolbar (1st choice/context menu 2nd choice) and when cliked on it opens with the location of where I am in the explorer window. For example, I navigate to and view the contents of the folder named Schematics and in the toolbar (or context menu) I would clik command prompt and the window would open thus :

Not sure if it can be placed on the toolbar, but there is this: Open Command Window Here,
And this: Open Command Window Here - Add or Remove, in either case it doesn't mention if it is an elevated prompt.

An elevated prompt is a command prompt window that allows commands that require administrative privileges.

With an Elevated Command Prompt you would see C:\System32\Users\MourningStar\etc.. at the prompt.

Instead of C:\Users\MourningStar\etc.. that you now see at the non-elevated Command Prompt in your screenshot.

If you enjoy working with the CMD prompt, here is a list of Commands in Windows 7 take note of the related tutorials at the bottom.

Thank you Anak - I seem to recall a tutorial for adding stuff to the toolbar and I think/hope it was on this site because I remember going thru steps to put a 'Delete' up there. I will search this site for putting the command prompt in the toolbar. I really must begin a log of these tweaks I make and annotate where I found them.

Don't be too hard on yourself, I was only joshin'

I looked through that tutorial, and couldn't find anything about a CMD prompt. Do you think using Windows.CMD as the value data would work or would you need to find the CLSID and use that?
