How to open command prompt at any location in Windows 7

The command window is very essential to performing various system tasks. Sometimes however, we wish to open a command prompt at a specific location, instead of opening the general command prompt and then giving the required path.

The path may be unknown or too long. This tutorial demonstrates how to open a command prompt window at any location in Windows 7.

Go to the location where you want to open the command prompt window. (e.g. the Desktop)
Press the Shift key and right-click simultaneously. This menu has the option “Open command window here”. Click on it and you are good to go..

 The same thing can be done when right-clicking on a folder also.
