Windows-Hint: open shell in specifyed folder

This is a hint for windows users who often want to open a shell in a specifyed folder from the windows explorer.
The following file will create a new menupoint "Open shell with this folder" in the context menu, which is displayed when clicking with the right mouse button on a folder in the windows explorer.

For Windows2000 & WindowsXP: save the following text in a REG-File and run:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\shell\cmd]
@="Open shell with this folder"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\shell\cmd\command]
@="cmd.exe /k \"cd %L\""

For Windows98: save the following text in a REG-File and run:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\shell\cmd]
@="Open shell with this folder"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\shell\cmd\command]
@="cmd.exe /k cd %L"
