Well many of us still use the command prompt (atleast I do) to test several things or love working with batch files. For that purpose I need to access many folders on different drives. Using CD repeatedly can be a pain when you need to do it frequently. There are power toys & tweaks available which allow us to add the functionality of accessing a folder directly in command prompt but I am going to share a simple trick to implement it in WinXP.
Step # 1 Just Select Folder Options from Tools menu
Step # 2 Under the File Types tab, find entry named Folder and click on Advanced
Step # 3 Select New to add a new entry in context menu
Step # 4 Type “CMD” or anything you like to appear on context menu in Action and type cmd.exe /k cd %1 below it
Step # 5 Select Ok as many times as it ask for to come back to the explorer window where you started. Now when you right click on any folder, there will be a context menu entry for accessing that folder in command prompt.
