PromptExplore gives you a command prompt without the grief

Sometimes you just need a command prompt. Whether it's some old MS-DOS program you're running, or some utility that requires three different command line arguments, there's just no substitute for getting in there and typing that command at the prompt. If you're going to do this anywhere other than the system's default location, however, it can take quite a bit of effort to change directories that many times to drill that deeply into your system. With "cd" this and "cd" that, along with a couple or typos, and you're talking real time and aggravation. Isn't there any easier way to get this done?

It's a pretty simple concept. Just install PromptExplore, and it's added to the context menu (right click menu) for Windows Explorer. Now whenever you need a DOS box, just browse to the directory you want to be in, right click on the directory icon, and then click MS-DOS Prompt (for 98/ME) or Command Prompt (for NT/2k), and you get a window with a command prompt, already in the directory you just chose. This simple act can save you a lot of time when you need that prompt six levels down in the directory structure on your hard drive.

Prompt Explore is a Windows app and runs under just about anything from Win98 or NT on up.
