Today’s tip…

    With all the command line tools that I have, I’m always needing to spawn a CMD prompt to do this or that, and it always seems that I’m in Windows Explorer at the time. So in Windows 8, my new favorite way to open a CMD prompt is built into Explorer.

    1. Click on File
    2. Highlight Open command prompt
    3. Select the option you want (I do everything in an administrator prompt)


    It opens up a CMD prompt at the location where Explorer had open. You can also use this method to open up Windows PowerShell.
