Start Menu,

The "Open Command Windows Here" and "Open Command Windows Here as Administrator" context menus are only for folder locations and not files.

Do you mean Run as administrator instead?

However, you -can- do so with the Open Command Windows Here as Administrator registry edit. When you have a folder open, you can right-click on the window background (not on a file), and the pop-up menu will have the 'Open Command Window Here as Administrator' option.

In what version of windows are you saying this is possible? Every single time I do a clean install I always have to get in the registry and make some changes. Personally I like within directory to give non-elevated cmd access only so that if I do want elevated access I just have to hold shift. Now correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the shift 'extended' shell menu a 64-bit windows thing (WoW64) or does shift give a likewise extended shell menu on 32 bit as well?

I just checked in my windows 8 that I'm booted in at the time of writing this and I am unable to right click a directory in neither the navigation pane or the explorer pane.

You are saying it is by default and that you do not need to access HKCR/Folder/... to add this 'right click a folder w/o shift' to give access to this command?

From my understanding by default:
HKCR/Folder/... has no command access "open this folder in cmd window" upon fresh installation
HKCR/Directory/.. has command access added but only accessed by extended shift menu.

Neither has any Elevated aspect to it.



If I am incorrect could you please fill me in on whatever version of windows you are using and whether or not it is a 32 or 64 bit..

ADDITION: I did fool around with a 3rd program to add some shell context menu features this time, but non were related to CMD, nor would I think that it may have removed something seeing as how simple this is to get a grasp on, with a little practice

Thanks,
Paul
