Vista – Open Command Prompt Here Menu Option

In Windows XP you could install an enhancement (Power Toy) which would display a menu option named “Open Command Window Here” whenever you right-clicked on a folder icon. This would allow you to launch a shell already changed to the folder you right-clicked on. This feature is built into Vista. Just hold down the SHIFT key while right-clicking on a folder icon and you will see the menu option “Open Command Window Here”.
