You can add several items like Command prompt, Copy the contents to clipboard, Copy To, Move To in your right click context menu in Windows7. These additions obviously will benefit you by saving your time. Let’s discuss about the methods one by one. All the methods described in this article are based on registry editing. So back up your registry before editing and keep yourself on the safe side.

Method 1:-

  • Go to Start >> Run
  • Type "regedit" and hit Enter
  • Expand to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Folder\shell"

  • Right-click on "shell" and select New Key
  • Make sure a new key is created under "shell".
  • Change the name of this key to "Command Prompt"
  • Right-click on this new key "Command Prompt" and select New Key
  • Change the name of this key to "command"
  • In the right side of panel you can see "default" right click on it and modify it's value data
    cmd.exe "%1" (with double quotes).



Now close your registry editor and right click on any folder. You should see the “Command Prompt here” option.


Method 2:-

  • Create a text file, type in the following lines and save it as "addcmdprompt-AWOP.reg"
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
@=”Command Prompt:”
@=”cmd.exe /k cd %1"

Save this out and double click the file. Note this will modify the registry but we promise it is safe. Your anti-virus software might ask you to confirm the registry change and it is safe to allow it.
