Windows 7 – Command Prompt Here

I’ve been using Windows 7 for a couple of days now and really like it. However, there was one small niggle… my ‘Command Prompt Here’ folder context menu option had disappeared.

It seems that Command Prompt Here has been added as a standard ‘Extended’ option in Windows 7 and that’s where my option had gone… onto the folder’s Extended context menu, which is visible if you hold down Shift while right-clicking on a folder. Since I use that option so often I wanted it back on the regular context menu. Fortunately this is very simple:
1.
Open RegEdit

2.
Go to HKCR\Directory\shell\cmd

3.
Delete the string value ‘Extended’

And Hey Presto it’s back!
