Whenever I need to work on an older version of Windows, I am incredibly frustrated by the lack of the "Open Command Window Here" extended option when you shift-right-click in explorer. Is there any way to add this functionality on to older versions of windows?
You can make registry entry for that in older version of Windows. Type this in Notepad and save as CommandWindowHere.reg. Double click to run it. If you prefer, you can also make these entries manually using RegEdit directly.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\CommandPrompt]@="Open Command Window Here" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\CommandPrompt\command]@="cmd.exe /k pushd %L"

Microsoft's Powertoys still has download to add exactly that to XP.
It should work on server 2003 too.
