Some usefull registry tweaks for developer!

To get command prompt on the right click:

1. Open regedit.exe from Run menu

2. Navigate to


and create a key called "Command Prompt".

3. Set the default string to "Command Prompt" or simply "CMD", since this text will come when you right click on a FOLDER.

4. Create a new key within the newly created command prompt named "command," and set the default string to

cmd.exe /k pushd %L
