    does anyone know of a method to add a button onto the toolbar in order to open the CMD program pointed at the currently explored directory? similar to what exists in Linux.

    Code:
    REGEDIT4 
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\DosHere] 
    @="Command &Prompt Here" 
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\DosHere\command] 
    @="C:\\WINDOWS\\System32\\cmd.exe /k cd \"%1\""
    
    not exactly what you want, this adds the 'Command Prompt from here' option to your right click menu, so right click a folder and you can open a cmd prompt from there

    add that to a text file and rename it to a .reg file then apply

    sorry phoenix. im totally inexperienced with altering the registry. would it be possible for you to break it down into a step by step process?

    Thanks

    EDIT: actually, i just realised i installed a program called shell toys on the august issue of PCPRO's DVD which has the same option in the right click menu
