I have XP Pro.

I was trying to add "command" to the list of actions when
I right click on a folder in the left pane of windows
explorer. I wanted to be able to right click on any
folder and click on "command" to launch DOS with the
command line already pointing to the directory I was in.

A was told to follow these step:
1. From window explorer, Tools | Folder Options | File
Types
2. Select "(NONE) File Folder" and clicked on the
Advanced button.
3. Clicked on New button.
4. Under "Action" I put "command".
5. Under "Application used to perform action" I navigated
to Windows\system32\cmd.exe

When I opened window explorer and click on the left pane
file tree structure and right clicked a folder, it worked.

BUT when I attempt to left click any folder or file on
the right pane, it trys to open a commad box instead of
exploring the folder/file.

I went back into File Types, but Edit and Remove are
disabled. How do I restore my file type so that when I
left click in the right pane of windows explore on a
folder/file, it will explore the folder/file instead of
trying to open a command box.

This is very important that it gets restored, please help!

regsvr32 /i shell32

Thanks, it now explores the folder but I still can't edit
the File Types, Edit and Remove are disabled. How do I
remove what I've added so that it doesn't show up in the
right click menu.

Andrés,

Try deleting from the registry directly: The options will be present under:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\

But it's not the addition that is causing the problem. It is a bug in that dialog that whenever it edits file folders or drives it writes a windows 95/98 entry instead of a windows xp entry. The entries changed in a minor way and you get wierd behaviour. The solution is not to use the dialog, of if you do to type that command afterwards. It writes the winxp entry.

Hi David,

Looks like the regsvr32 /i shell32 has worked (as always), was just trying
to guide Andrés on removing the extra items.

Right-click the key and choose Export. Post the contents here.

"Find" is present by default, don't remove it.
