How to enable open "command line/window here" in Vista by default

Though this option is available by using the right click
option on the mouse while pressing the shift key, you
can enable this feature just by right clicking the folder.

Steps to follow are:
  • Click Start, Run and type Regedit.exe
  • Navigate to the following location:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\cmd

  • OPTIONAL - [Backup the branch, in case you need to undo the setting later, this can be done by choosing export on the file menu of regedit tool, and saving the file in a safe place. To restore this setting just double click the saved file to merge and undo registry changes.]
  • In the right-pane, delete the REG_SZ value named Extended
  • Close Regedit.exe
