    Command Prompt From Explorer Window


    How do I open a command prompt from an Explorer Window?
    Of course it must open at the same path without having to type in navigation commands (that's the whole point).

    Thanks,

    Press and hold down the Shift key, then right click on the folder that you want to open the command prompt at that location for and click on "Open Command Prompt Here".

    Open Command Window Here

    or

    Open Command Window Here as Administrator
