To create a context menu entry for "Command Prompt Here", you need only follow a few simple steps.
First, copy the following text into notepad and save as "CmdHere.reg":
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
@="Command &Prompt Here"
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTDirectoryshellCmdHerecommand @="cmd.exe "%1"
Right click on the 'CmdHere.reg' file and choose 'Merge.' You will now
have 'Command Prompt Here' as a context menu entry in Explorer when you
right click on a folder. If you prefer, you can always use regedit and create the keys and REG_SZ entries yourself. Enjoy!
