    Thank you for this tip! This shortcut will be very useful for when I am looking to open a folder quickly. Is it possible to create a shell command for new folders that you create?

  2. Ed says:

    A Windows 7 user probably doesn’t care whether a command is available in Vista, s/he simply wants a list of all commands.

    Also, the above lists appear to be unsorted.

    Here is the result of combining your Vista and “7 only” lists, and sorting alphabetically (ascending):
