Okay, so not everyone remembers the days of DOS, and why should they? Thanks to today’s modern graphical user interfaces (GUIs), good ol’ blackscreen hasn’t been used in any regular capacity in a long time. Yet there are some occasions where you need to get to a location on your hard drive and only the Command Prompt window will do.
So, let’s make it easier to navigate to a specific location in the command prompt without having to actually type in any of those archaic/forgotten commands to get there.
In Windows Explorer, simply browse to the location you were going to seek out in the Command Prompt (let’s say, Program Files).
Now hold Shift and right-click on the folder you want to open.
You’ll notice an option to Open command window here.
Click on it and the Command Prompt will open up exactly where you specified! No silly text-based navigation commands required!
