Command Prompt here….

Nothing to do with APEX, but I really don’t want to forget this.

As you might know, I’m a big fan of the command prompt. I’ve been using 4DOS/4NT/Take Command for years.

These products are sold by a company called JP Software. But now they also have a free-ware product, which suffices for most of my work.

To get a “Command Prompt here” after a right-click on a folder in Windows Explorer I did this:

  1. Installed TCC/LE (downloaded here)
  2. Opened my reg-editor and went to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Classes/Folder/Shell
  3. Created a key called “Command Prompt”
  4. Set the default string to “&Take Command LE”
  5. Created a new key within the “Command Prompt” key called “command”
  6. Set the default string to
    "C:Program FilesJPSoftTCCLE12tcc.exe" cdd "%1"
  7. Ready. Changes should take effect immediately

This information was taken from another blog and adjusted for TCC/LE
