Following up on this question over at SO (How do I open cmd window in specific location?) I'm looking for an effective way to add the Open Command Prompt Here shortcut to a context menu. Various solutions propose adding entries to HKCR\Folder and others suggest adding entries to HKCR\Directory.
Based on this question (Directory Vs. Folder) it seems a folder could be virtual or not while a directory is always "real". A ven diagram would have folder being a large circle and directory a smaller circle completely enclosed within the folder circle.
For the sake of a command prompt, is it correct to assume I'll probably only be dealing with "real" folders, or directories?
The questions then are as follows:
Can I open a command prompt window in a virtual directory and what conceivable reason would I have for doing this?
Would adding a context menu item ONLY to HKCR\Folder cover all my bases and then some?
Would adding a context menu item ONLY to HKCR\Directory end up missing some things?
Finally, for brownie points:
What if I wanted to be able to add an entry to open a command prompt by clicking inside a folder rather than on a folder icon, which context menu item would I have to use to get this function?
