    Sebastion,

    Please go ahead and post a screenshot showing the context menu to see if its location on the context menu may help ID what registry key it could be in.

    Is this context menu item only available when you right click on a folder, or also available when you right click on a drive and/or folder background?
    Please find PNG attached. 'Open MS-DOS Prompt' occurs in the context menus of Folders and Drives.

    Comparing the screenshot of the context menu against mine shows a few differences suggesting third-party software/programs are installed that added to the menu.

    Yes there are 3rd party programs installed. MS-DOS is NOT one of them.
    What program did you use the add the arrows ?

    MSPaint. It's been in a number of versions of Windows, still is in Start, W section, Windows Accessories.

    MS-DOS was Microsoft's iteration of the Disk Operating System, there were others "back in the day", '80s and '90s such as IBM-DOS, PC-DOS, DR-DOS, etc. Windows 95 was the beginning of merging DOS with the GUI/Graphical User Interface, also called WYSIWYG/What You See Is What You Get, that was Windows 3.xx and earlier that was installed after DOS. Used to be one could boot directly into DOS instead of loading the GUI of Windows. Now it's the Command Prompt or PowerShell. A large number of DOS commands still work in Command Prompt.

    Open MS-DOS prompt' from folder Context Menu in Win10 ?


    I've tried the MSPaint and been able to make the arrows like your did. Thank you.

    Have we come to the end of the road in trying to remove 'Open MS-DOS Prompt' from Context Menu ?

    You're welcome.

    Really shouldn't have started a new thread for same subject.

    When did the entry first show up? If it was after the last update have you tried a System Restore?

    I don't know when it first started up. The Context Menu had got so congested that I decided to clear it out and the MS-DOS prompt entry was the last superfluous entry that resisted removal. I have NOT tried a system restore, and will not either, because I am forever enhancing the system and do not want to loose THOSE successful tweaks.
    I started the inquiry in another forum because it seemed to me that the solution was evading me in THIS forum.

    Sebastian,

    I have one more key below for you to export and upload. It may be in it instead. I'm thinking it will be in the "shell" key from your screenshot.

    Here's hoping.

    The other forum that you chided me about approaching, had the solution. I deliberately triggered the addition of 'Open MS-DOS Prompt' to the Context Menu, by installing (some time in the distant past) the program CLICKIE.
