Opening a Windows Command Prompt from Windows Explorer

Do you ever find yourself navigating 10 folder deep in Windows Explorer and wishing there was an easy way to open a command prompt to your current location.  Yeah, me to.  I remember years ago someone showing me that they could do this through a right-click selection on a folder, however, I had forgotten how.  That is, until today when I was looking down the list of tools available in the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools and saw this little gem “Cmdhere.inf: Command Here“.  I instantly had a flashback of those fond memories of watching this person use this wonderful tool. 

The use of the tool is extremely simple.  Once you have installed the Cmdhere.inf file that comes with the resource kit there will now be a menu item titled “CMD Promt Here” in the Right-Click menu of a folder.
