    If you select / highlight a folder in File Explorer and and then pick Open Command Prompt, then the Current Directory (CD) in Cmd is the folder selected in file Explorer. You don't have to change directories in Cmd.

    Just realized the same menu is in Win 8.1 but the "Delete History" Option has been changed to "Change Folder and Search Options in Win 10.
