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.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(
