How to: Open Command Prompt here, right click context menu in Vista

Ever wanted to open the command prompt from any given location while browsing your HDD? Well if you have Vista your in luck, because with Vista this functionality is built in. However Microsoft must want to keep it a secret, because they have hidden it.

In windows explorer hold down the Shift key and right click on a folder, you will now see a ‘Open Command Window here’ option. Nice and simple.

Not many people know about this, which is a shame because it is very useful.
