Can you get "Open File Location" in the right-click menu in XP?

This is available on some Windows Server editions and in Win7.

This can be done in the registry

copy the text between the ========= into a text file and then save it, change the extension from .txt to .reg right click it and select merge.


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\File Location]
@="Open &File Location"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\File Location\command]
@="\"explorer.exe\" /select,\"%1\""


or download the reg files from here
