Hi

The "power toy" is a registry entry
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\cmd] [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\cmd\Command] @="cmd.exe /K \"cd %L\""
and is insanely useful. To be able to right-click on the directory and pop the command line saves a great deal of time.

Getting a bash shell would probably be even better.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\bash shell] [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\bash shell\Command] @="cmd /C \"cd /d %L && c:\\cygwin\\bin\\bash.exe\""
