How can I open a command prompt in current folder with a keyboard shortcut in Windows 7?
Is there any way to implement this?
I think Autohotkey could do this, but don't know how.
Use this keyboard shortcut: Shift + Menu, W, Enter
The Menu key refers to the special key introduced by Microsoft, usually to the right of the right Win key.
This shortcut is available on a default installation of Windows (7) without any 3rd party software.
The AHK way. You just need to press Win + C (or whatever you want to define it as.):
As a bonus, the script above also creates a new text file with this shortcut: Win + T

the native way to do something similar in windows7 is to hold down shift while pressing the right mouse onto the folder you want to "command prompt" to and a new menu item will appear in your context menu offering you exactly that: "open command prompt here".
if you want pure keyboard action then you have to do this:
this adds the "open command window here" entry to the context menu permanently. you can trigger this entry by pressing:
the name of the menu entry is labled according to the language of your OS.
an alternative route is to do this:
which grabs the current path from the address bar of explorer and executes
