Display more options in the context menu


Under Windows Vista, it is possible to display more options in the context menu of by pressing "Shift" and right-click on the file or folder.


For example, when you right-click on a folder, it will display two more options:

"Open a command window here" opens the command prompt to the folder location (instead of C: \ Users \ [user name] \)

"Copy as Path": Copy the folder to the clipboard.

However under Windows XP, you have only the option "Pin to start menu".
