When extending the Windows' shell context menu (e.g. for adding an 'Open command here' prompt on directories), a 'command' key needs to be created in the registry.
The value of this 'command' key apparently can be any valid command line.
I want to know which 'special variables' are available for use inside this command line.
For example, I use following command for opening a cmd window from within a directory's context menu (*):
cmd.exe /e:on /f:on /s /k pushd "%V"
I cannot find any reference to what
%V actually means or what the full list of such variables is.
Following registry keys are created for this:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\shell\cmdshell] @=Open Command Prompt Here" HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\shell\cmdshell\command] @="cmd.exe /e:on /f:on /s /k pushd \"%V\""
