I need to get these keyboard shortcuts written down before I forget them. I'll update this page whenever I come across a new one:
Start PowerShell from an explorer window.
- Type Alt-D to set the context in the explorer windows address bar.
- Type powershell and hit Enter
You can also open a command prompt using this method by typing cmd instead of PowerShell.
Likewise, if you're in PowerShell and wish to open an explorer window at your current location:
Type ii . and hit enter (don't forget the space between the i and full stop)
ii is the alias for the Invoke-Item Cmdlet [http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee176882.aspx]
