How to add “Open command window here” in Windows 10 context menu

Posted on

Without dangling with permissions stuff in registry, here is my simple registry hack to add “Open command window here” in Windows 10 context menu (right click on file explorer).

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\normal_cmd]@="@shell32.dll,-8506""Icon"="cmd.exe,0"[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\normal_cmd\command]@="cmd.exe /s /k pushd \"%V\""[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\normal_cmd]@="@shell32.dll,-8506""Icon"="cmd.exe,0"[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\normal_cmd\command]@="cmd.exe /s /k pushd \"%V\""

This registry hack will allow you to add “Open command window here” in context menu without needed to edit permission in registry.

You can access it by right-click on file explorer. Simpler right!
