Just a quick blog post this week as I’ve spent the past few weeks studying for the 74-409 exam: Server Virtualization with Windows Server Hyper-V and System Center, which I passed on Friday, whoopee!
It’s not unusual while working on machines to want to jump to a command prompt in the directory you’ve just copied a file or script to. Usually I’d go to Start – Run – Cmd, then cd to the correct directory. Not any more!
By holding down the Shift key and Right Clicking the folder you would like to open a command prompt in, a new menu context item appears – Open command window here.
It’s one of those commands that’s probably always been there but I’ve just never stumbled upon until now!
Here is another way, and it will allow you to open an elevated command prompt as an administrator.
Select the folder you want to open an elevated command prompt from. Click File – Open command prompt here – Open command prompt as administrator.
