Add The Command Prompt To The Right Click

A very powerful tool that's native to the Windows platform, Is the Command Prompt that allows users to execute an extensive range of tasks, such as securely erase a drive, create partitions, delete files & folders and the list goes on. Whilst It's easy to access It using the search box, wouldn't It be great If It were available via the right-click context menu? In this tutorial, I will show you how to do just that with a few simple steps.

If you're anything like myself and use the Command Prompt quite regularly, and wish to have It readily available at all times, then this guide will certainly fulfill your needs. Essentially, once this tweak Is applied, It will add the Open command window here (as Illustrated In the Image above) to the right click of the mouse.

To achieve this, I will be using a Registry file, that will add the entries to the Windows Registry, and enable the option thereafter. All that's required on your part, Is to double-click the file, follow a couple of prompts, and the job's done. Do note that the Open command window here option, does not apply when right-clicking files.

I've provided the download links to the Registry files at the end of this article. So without further delay, let's get this tutorial happening.

Step One:
Once you've downloaded the file, extract It's contents to a folder of your choice, then double-click the Add Command Prompt.reg file. A message will be displayed, asking whether to add the entries to the Windows Registry. Click Yes.

Step Two:
A message will now be displayed, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Windows Registry. Click OK to finalize the process.

Step Three:
Upon right-clicking my Windows 10 Tips folder, as you can see, the Open command window here option Is now available and ready to use. Let's put this to the test by clicking on It.

Step Four:
As expected, the Command Prompt has executed, hence the option serves It's objective.

Last Step:
If you like to remove the Open command window here option, simply double-click on the Remove Command Prompt.reg file and hit Yes.

Final Thoughts:

The good thing about applying the tweak via the Registry file, Is that It adds the entries there and then, without the need to edit the Windows Registry manually- which can cause loss of functionality to the operating system when edited Incorrectly. Given the Registry Is a critical part of the OS, I strongly suggest backing It up using It's Export feature prior to applying any tweaks.
