Hi,
I would like to start a DOS shell by right clicking on a directory when I'm in WinNT Explorer.  Is it possible by entering some parameters in the registry ?
Thanks in advance.

Cut this text into a *.reg file and run it. It does exactly what you want:

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\DosHere]
@="Command &Prompt Here"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\DosHere\command]
@="C:\\WINDOWS\\command.com /k cd \"%1\""

Regards, Madshi.

Sorry, here comes the NT part:

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\DosHere]
@="Command &Prompt Here"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\DosHere\command]
@="c:\\winnt\\system32\\cmd.exe /k cd \"%1\""
