    Unlike Windows XP, Windows Vista built-in an easy but imperfect option to open command prompt window at a specific folder path - just press the SHIFT key while right-click a folder or drive and click the “Open Command Window Here” option in the pop-up context menu!

    It’s imperfect, as the Windows Vista UAC will run this command prompt window as a standard user process. Having say that, you can’t use it to execute a command or perform an action that required administrator privilege!
