1. Click start
2. Click Run (or alternately to get to this Windows Key +R)
3. Type cmd
4. Then Type cd
5. Then drag the folder of the location I want into this window
6. Hit enter (ok so not literally, I didn't hit it)
1. Open an explorer window, this can be accomplished by either pressing "Windows key + E" or just opening a folder.
2. Select Tools Folder Options,
3. Click the Tab File Types
4. Select Folder
5. Select Advanced
6. Select New
7. For Action name, Just name it something you'll remember like "command prompt"
8. For the application used to perform this action enter cmd.exe /K cd %1
9. Select Ok's to exit.
10. Try it out, now go to a folder and right click on it and select whatever you named your action.
Time to explain what I had you put in the application used to perform.
cmd.exe opens your command prompt, /K means "run the following" and the following is cd %1, cd means change directory, and %1 means what was passed to the command in this case the folder location (I.E. c:\New Folder).
I hope this helps some people out there, let me know how it works for those of you who try it!!!
Thank you for reading my first "real" post.
this is glorious - really, i love it. but you can't edit or remove it once you put it in. wait... nope, i can remove it from the windows registry by searching for whatever name i gave it. it'll be in a folder with the default open and explore options.ReplyDelete

i love it. but i wanted to change the name i gave it, and i found i couldn't edit or remove it once i had put it in. wait... nope. i found it in the registry with the default "open" and "explore" actions and simply deleted it.
