I learned recently that you can open a command prompt from within file explorer by typing cmd in the address bar. And this will open in the current directory.

How do you open it up from the address bar as an admin?

  • You don't. But press Windows key, type "cmd" in Search and press Shift-Ctrl-Enter to get Admin CMD easily. – DrMoishe Pippik Mar 26 at 2:22
