Windows Pro-Tip: Opening a command window from an explorer window easily

This is one I need to remember: when you are in an explorer window hold down the Shift key and right click on a folder or in the white-space of the current folder and you have the option to 'Open command window here'. This is pretty brilliant, there have been tons of times I needed to do run a shell script with switches and opened a command prompt from the taskbar just to browse to the script I already had pulled up in explorer.
