Developer, manager and marketing idiot. I've been working at Red Gate since 2005 on products as diverse as Red Gate Cloud Services, SQL Data Compare and ANTS Performance Profiler. I do a lot of DIY and home-brew because there's only so much time I can stare at a monitor.

Save hours-get a command prompt

Published 15 August 2011 12:01 am

Recently somebody showed me a little trick to get a command prompt in any directory. Simply hold down SHIFT whilst pressing right-click on the folder and the menu option containing “Open command window here” appears as if by magic.


I know this is simple but it’s not something I knew about, or had forgotten about. There seems to be a complete list of short-cuts on MSDN.

Hopefully this can save you as much time as it does for me.
