It should now appear.
The Powertoys provided additional functionality for Windows XP...Some are redundant with Windows 7. You can hold the SHIFT key and right-click a folder, and the command window option will appear. That's a little bother, though, having to hold SHIFT.
If you download and use Ultimate Windows Tweaker, you have access to a good number of options for tweaking Win7 appearance and behaviour. One option is to make the command window option appear on right-click without having to hold the SHIFT key. There a lot of other useful options as well.
