Unfinished Requests / Re: IDEA: Get current directory

Skrommel, thanx for the code and the suggestion.  My question is, how is this different than 'Open Command Prompt here' other than the hot key?  You still have to have the folder selected, correct?  That really isn't what I am looking for.  In Linux, if you have Konquerer (KDE version of Explorer/IE) open, then hit PF4, then the terminal shell opens in that current directory, no selection of the current dir is necessary.  I assume that it just "pings" the tree and the return directory is passed to the terminal as a variable.

Everything that I have seen with Windows shows me that I have to physically select the folder that I want to open to pass to the cmd.  A.K.A., I need to back up to the parent dir of the folder that I want, highlight the folder, then apply whichever means I desire to open the cmd.  I don't think that this should have to be.  From my thinking, there HAS to be a way in which for this to work.  It just needs to be figured out :) .  Do I make what I am looking for clear?

I use an Explorer replacement as well, the free version of Xplorer2, and I do know about the context menu option Microsoft add on for 'open command prompt here'.  What I initially tried was copying the registry value of the context menu item into a shortcut, then passing the command prompt that shortcut as a value.  That works ... kind of.   It will get the context of the dir that the shortcut is in, not update and get the one where I currently am. 

I have asked around on several forums about this before, and have done a fair bit of searching throughout the Web.  General concensus is that everyone thinks it is possible, but no one knows how :) .  Hope one of you can help me.

I am running Windows XP Pro with Blackbox as my default shell. I wouldl like a way to be able to map my PF4 key to open a DOS command prompt in the current directory that I am in, as in Linux.  I have the hotkeys plugin, and I can map it to open cmd.exe, but I can't find a way to get the current dir to pass it as an argument.  Would it be possible to code an app that would do that for me?
