How to Enable “Open Command Window Here” Option in Context Menu in Windows 10


How to return the ‘Open command window here’ option to Windows 10’s context menu

You can bring back the option to launch Command Prompt from the right-click context menu on Windows 10, and in this video, we show you how.

On Windows 10, Microsoft continues to fade out Command Prompt in favor of PowerShell. Although you can still use the console, you’ll notice that the option is no longer available on the Power User menu (Windows key + X), on the File menu for File Explorer, or in the extended context menu (Shift + Right-click).

While there is an option in the Settings app to add Command Prompt to the Power User menu, you won’t find an option to bring it back to the extended context menu. However, it’s still possible to re-incorporate the option in Windows 10, if you’re comfortable modifying the Registry.

If you have any question about this, you can feel free to leave them to comment section below or post in our group and I will try to reply when I’m free.
