Open Command Prompt from selected folder
After opening the command prompt, you usually have to type the path to the folder with “cd” followed by the directory path. However, there is the possibility to open the command prompt in a certain folder, to do this you go to the desired directory in Windows Explorer, and then type “cmd” in the address bar and press the Enter key.
The Command Prompt opens in the selected directory path.
If the command prompt is used more often, the PowerShell enabled as the default can be replaced. To do this, go to the settings, under Personalization – Taskbar, Replace Command Prompt with Windows PowerShell in the menu when I right-click the start button or press Windows key+X, here switch to Off.
This means that with Windows+X instead of the default of PowerShell, the command prompt now appears.
