BackgroundCMD Description

Command Prompt Folder Background Shell Extension. BackgroundCMD is a command prompt folder background shell extension. It allows you to start a command prompt (an instance of cmd.exe) from within any directory that youre currently browsing. There are many command prompt shell extensions out there. However, as far as I can tell, none of them allow you to open a console window in the current directory that youre browsing. Most will only allow you to right-click a folder and have the command prompt start in that folder. This can be quite a nuisance. When browsing a directory, I dont want to have to go up one level just to start the command prompt. And what about the desktop? Do I really have to browse to my user folder under "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator" just to get it working? So I wrote one that works properly, because I never know when Ill need a console window until Im in the folder Ill need it in. I relied upon The Code Projects excellent "The Complete Idiots Guide to Writing Shell Extensions" series. Simply right-click the directory background, and select "CMD Prompt" from the context menu. The new consoles initial path will be set to the directory you were browsing.
