Add options to your right click menu

Problem:  Can I have better options on my right click menu?

Solution: Yes you can.  I’ve used these for years, not sure where I picked up the original .reg files from but I just converted them to Powershell.

The following script will add “Copy To folder…”, “Move To folder…” and “Open Command Prompt Here…” to your right click menu within explorer.
