Command prompt from your current folder

Sometimes you need a command prompt to do stuff.  That works fine if folder is need isn’t buried too deep in windows.  For example, C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\Config.

Who wants to type all that out?  Well here’s a shortcut a co-worker told me about.

Just browse in windows explorer to the deep folder you need.  Then in the address bar type cmd.  Then boom a command prompt opens with the path set to your current path (versus C:\)

Makes is so much easier to run an executable.
