When we open Command Prompt (DOS) to perform special tasks, majority of the time we also have to reach a special folder or directory in order to gain access to files or documents. This means that we have to type the full path to the folder on the Command Prompt. It is useless to say that if the path to that folder is long, we are going to get crazy to remember or copy it in the DOS. Did you know that you can open the Command Prompt in the current folder in Windows 7 without typing the full path? Let’s see how to achieve this result!
- Go to the folder of directory you want to reach from the Command Prompt.
- Press the Shift key on your keyboard and right-click the folder or the folder icon to open the menu.
- From the menu, click the Open Command Windows Here option.
