open a command prompt to the directory in explorer

this is a cool trick I picked up from my coworker who picked up from a presentation. basically, you can open a command prompt to the exact folder where your explorer is pointing to. here's how.

navigate to the folder you're interested in.

in the address bar of explorer, type "cmd" and hit enter.

this will launch a command prompt directly to the folder. perfect!
