Windows 7: Open Command Window Here

OK, I'm going to be posting the screen shots in a little bit - it involves the use of the EXIF tool by Phil Harvey - I have a ton (~40 GB) of photos and video from my Hawai'i trip but moving all the pics from my phone and cameras to my PC changed all the System File Date settings to current time, so I now have to go back and fix all that.

The tool works normally when I open a command prompt anywhere using the normal cmd shortcut, but if I use this particular trick, it's like Windows is ignoring the path command completely and does not let me execute the tool.

Haha. In trying to take my screencaps I figured out what the problem was.

If I already had run the tool in one instance cmd, then it cannot run again in another instance until I close out the first one

I feel like a dork now.

Hello Luc, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It would need to be Shift + right click instead on a folder or drive.

No problem. In that case, see if it shows up after using the tutorial below to add/restore "Open command windows here" back.

How about when you only right click on a folder or drive?
