Just like Shift+Right-Click to open a command prompt in that folder, I want to replace the command prompt with MobaXterm on Windows platform

Under the settings menu, click on the configuration option. A dialog box should appear with several tabs for various settings. In the General tab, there is an option for Right-click menu on Windows folders.

If they are already set up, it will ask if you want to uninstall the right-click option.


In addition to @Herb response, if you want the "Open MobaXterm terminal here" context menu option when right-clicking on the directory background (instead of right-clicking a folder only) you can do add the Windows registry:

@="Open MobaXterm terminal here"
@="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Mobatek\\MobaXterm\\MobaXterm.exe\" -openfolder \"%v\""
