    There was an XP Powertoy for this that worked in XP/2000/2003 that did the same thing without manually changing your registry (also included an uninstall option which automagically changed it back).

    Vista, BTW, has the ability built-in if you hold shift while right-clicking.

    They are good tweaks, it makes it much easier than using the cd command in cmd.

    Could not believe it does not enter things into the registry so I installed the powertoy.

    Two registry entries were added.

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\cmd\command

    value=cmd.exe /k "cd %L"

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell\cmd\command

    value=cmd.exe /k "cd %L"

    I then uninstalled the powertoy and the registry entries were taken out with the uninstall.

    So it seems the powertoy does add registry entries after all.

    What did you use to figure that out? Windiff or Regdiff or whatever it's called?

    No, I just searched for the words that the context menu displayed.
