PowerShell or Command Prompt, Change Folder

For the new breed of SharePoint developers, and using VS-Code for many projects, and even PowerShell, I’m jumping into a command window A LOT these days.

Click the Windows key

Type ‘cmd’ or ‘powershell’

Often, I need to switch over to a specific folder – and type in :

cd “C:\folder\whatever client\project name”

OR – Copy the folder address from Windows Explorer :

And then have to paste the address (right-mouse-click) – not forgetting quotes :

BUT – there’s a great quick shortcut to this – and it’s AWESOME.

Really.   Awesome.

Within the Windows Explorer bar – just type “PowerShell” (or “cmd”)

Hit ENTER on the keyboard

And – you instantly get a PowerShell window – starting in the same folder.image

Same works for CMD – how amazing is that !!
