To Add it to windows context (right-click) menu:

Method #3: Manually add the context menu

In explorer, open Tools, Folder Options.
Select the File Types tab.

Select the entry labeled Folder
For Windows 2000/XP: Press Advanced button.
For Windows NT/98/95: Press Edit button.
Select New
In the action block type "Command Prompt" without the quotes.
In the app block type "cmd.exe" without the quotes.
Save and exit Folder Options.

If you start having folders open by default in Cmd, make sure this key is set:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell
REG_SZ none
