Hi, today I'll show you my favorite tiny tips for Windows.
Usually we use "right click" and see some context menu like this:
This right click context menu is editable by
At this time I'll recommend some tips I use so many times.
Do you wanna open
cmd.exe and change directory HERE? I do!!
Here is the two source code:
(directory and directory background)
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\directory\shell\cmd-here] @="CMD.EXE HERE" "Icon"="cmd.exe" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\directory\shell\cmd-here\command] @="cmd.exe /K \"cd /d %1\""
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\directory\background\shell\cmd-here] @="CMD.EXE HERE" "Icon"="cmd.exe" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\directory\background\shell\cmd-here\command] @="cmd.exe /K \"cd /d %v\""
%v argument), easy enough?

*.reg file from this repository:
Next, "COPY PATH" context menu.
Here is the three source code:
(file, directory and directory background)
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\copy-path] @="COPY PATH" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\copy-path\command] @="cmd.exe /c \"(echo.|set /p=\"%1\")|clip\""
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\directory\shell\copy-path] @="COPY PATH" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\directory\shell\copy-path\command] @="cmd.exe /c \"(echo.|set /p=\"%1\")|clip\""
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\directory\background\shell\copy-path] @="COPY PATH" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\directory\background\shell\copy-path\command] @="cmd.exe /c \"(echo.|set /p=\"%v\")|clip\""
"CMD.EXE HERE" and "COPY PATH" are so useful when you develop on Windows machine.
I'm very happy if you use these useful tips :)
