Simple productivity hack everyone shall know!

right click

If you have to access couple of times the same feature in different folders a day, it is already worth to add the program or the command to your right click menu:

Personally I have to open cmd many times and I simply like more to navigate in the explorer sometimes, so here is what I did to add specific option to my right click menu:

First open the registry editor:

Navigate to the “Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\” folder

Right click on the “shell” folder and create a new entry (click on New -> key) and name it the way you want it to be displayed in your right click menu.

From now you can already see it in your right click menu but it does nothing yet.

Continue with right click on the folder you made and create a new key, and name it “command”

On the right side you can specify the Data field, you can also add execution options or whatever you wish:

I am using this one to access the cmd first then navigate to the current window : “C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe” “–cd=%v.”
