I have an end user that frequently opens a command prompt to use an application. However they must constantly navigate using "cd" to the correct application directory. Is there a way to change the default command prompt path for windows 2000? I found this link which I thought was golden
http://www.winguides.com/registry/display.php/1252/
however I am unable to add a REG_EXPAND_SZ type in the registry? I only have options to add REG_SZ; REG_BINARY; & REG_DWORD? If anyone knows how to change the default command path or how to add a REG_EXPAND_SZ value into a windows 2000 registry I would be very thankful.
