Open a Command Prompt from File Explorer

Most power users know this already, but I’ve noticed that a surprising number of “Average Joes” do not: if you’re using File Explorer (or Windows Explorer, as it’s known in older versions of Windows) and you want to open a command prompt at that particular location, all you have to do is type CMD+Enter in the address bar:

cmd_shortcut_01
File Explorer, open at C:\adb

 

cmd_shortcut_02
Type CMD in the address bar and press ENTER.

 

cmd_shortcut_03
Command Prompt opens to the current folder
