How to Add or Remove an "Open Command Prompt Here As Administrator" Shortcut to the Context Menu in Windows 7

In Windows Vista and Windows 7, when you want to open a command prompt starting with a certain path, this can be a tedious process and sometimes you'll notice that some programs won't run from the command prompt at all, because they require administrator privileges. There's an easy way to address both of these issues by adding a special menu item in the Windows context menu, which will allow you to open any folder in the command prompt running as administrator.

Open Notepad by going to Start → All Programs → Accessories → Notepad.

Copy codes given below and paste them in Notepad.


CopyFiles = CmdHereAsAdmin.Files.Inf
AddReg    = CmdHereAsAdmin.AddReg

CopyFiles = CmdHereAsAdmin.Files.Inf
AddReg    = CmdHereAsAdmin.AddReg

DelFiles  = CmdHereAsAdmin.Files.Inf
DelReg    = CmdHereAsAdmin.DelReg

55="CMD Prompt Here as Administrator","",1


CmdHereAsAdmin.Files.Inf = 17


HKLM,%UDHERE%,UninstallString,,"rundll32.exe syssetup.dll,SetupInfObjectInstallAction DefaultUninstall 132 %17%\CmdHereAsAdmin.inf"
HKCR,Directory\Shell\runas\command,,,"%11%\cmd.exe /k cd /d ""%1"""
HKCR,Drive\Shell\runas\command,,,"%11%\cmd.exe /k cd /d ""%1"""


CmdHereAsAdminName="CMD Prompt Here as Administrator PowerToy (Uninstall only)"
CmdHereAsAdminAccel="CMD here as Admin"
In Notepad, go to File → Save As... and save the file with name CmdHereAsAdmin.inf. Be sure to change the Save as Type: from Text Documents to All Files.
Go to the location where you just saved the "CmdHereAsAdmin.inf" file. Right click on the file and click on "Install" from context menu.
To try it, right-click any folder in Windows Explorer and you will see a new menu item called "CMD here as Admin". Click on that option and Command Prompt will appear.
If you want to uninstall the command prompt do the following. 
Go to Start → Control Panel → Add or Remove Programs.
Click on the Remove for CMD Prompt Here as Administrator PowerToy (Uninstall only) entry.
