hi all,

please read the foll. registry trick

To create a new right-click option to open a command
prompt window at the directory you are currently working from. 

Open your registry and find the key below. 

Create a new sub key called 'CommandPrompt' as in
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\CommandPrompt]. Change the value of
'(default)' within the key to equal the text you would like on the
right-click menu, for example 'Command Prompt Here'. 

Create another new sub-key under the key created above, name this subkey
'command' as in:
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\CommandPrompt\command]. Change the
value of '(default)' within this key to: /k cd "%1" 

Now my question is I want to do the same with bash. Can somebody tell me
what command line I should give to perform th eabove operation with bash?

Thanks in advance,
