Hi,

This is related to the Win 8. I am in the “Desktop Mode”. I double- click the icon of “Folder” at the bottom tray; and I see the followings:

I.      Favorites
1)      Desktop
2)      Download
3)      Recent Places

II.      Libraries
1)      Documents
2)      Music
3)      Pictures
4)      Videos

III.      Computer

IV.      Network

I name this location as “HERE”

My Question: How can I open the Command Line  from “HERE”?

Thank you

Right click the bottom left corner and click command prompt, or command prompt (admin)

Hold shift in the window whitepace and right click.
Only problem is that with UAC enabled you wont get a Admin command prompt


Open Command Prompt Here
