Open command line window in any directory

Ok, we have talked about this little useful tip sometime earlier on my previous website @googlepages. But,i felt that i should put it up again and share it with you all because of its usefulness.
This tip will create a right-click menu item to open up the command line window from the particular loacation(directory) that you are at and wanna work in..

Copy this to a text editor and save the file as a .reg
then merge with the main registry by opening it or right-clicking & then selecting merge.
Restart the PC to see the changes.
Now you can open the command window right from the directory you want to open it from,directly by right clicking and selecting the option,instead of "RUN"ing cmd.exe and then typing on the path you wanna be at.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

@="Open command window Here"

@="cmd.exe /k \"cd %L\""

* For Windows XP users

Cool. Isn't it?
