Context Console Shell Extension

2.1.0.20171024

Package test results are passing.

This package was approved by moderator AdmiringWorm on 2/19/2019.

The ContextConsole Shell Extension adds an "Open Command Prompt" menu item to the context menus (right-click menus) in Windows Explorer so that you can open a command prompt in the selected directory (or directories) or in the current directory that you are viewing.

Features

  • Open a command prompt in the current directory and in multiple directories at once.

    You can open a command prompt in the directory that you are currently in by right-clicking on any empty screen space in the directory. This eliminates the need to navigate up a level in order to open a command prompt in the current directory, which was one of the biggest shortcomings of Microsoft's Open Command Window Here PowerToy.

    You can also open multiple command prompts by selecting a group of directories and invoking the command prompt.

  • Support for elevated command prompts

    On versions of Windows that have UAC (Windows Vista, Windows 7, etc.), the ContextConsole Shell Extension can be used to open elevated command prompts.

  • Tiny footprint

    Compared to similar shell extensions, the ContextConsole Shell Extension has an extremely small memory and disk footprint (the 32-bit version consumes less than 16 KiB of disk space).

  • Free and open-source

    The ContextConsole Shell Extension is open-source, licensed under a BSD-style license, so that anyone with some knowledge of C can easily build their own customized version of this shell extension.

  • Compatibility: international support and 64-bit-compatible

    The user interface text has been translated into many languages, so that it will blend in seamlessly with most systems. Additionally, this shell extension is natively Unicode and can thus support a wide range of directory names.

    Both x86-32 and x86-64 systems are natively supported, so you can use this with the increasingly common 64-bit versions of Windows.

  • Support for network paths

    You can even open directories from network paths (UNC paths).

To install Context Console Shell Extension, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install contextconsole

To upgrade Context Console Shell Extension, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:
