How it works

This extension adds a new command to the project context menu that will open a command prompt on the project's path. If the solution node is selection in Solution Explorer, then a console will open at the root of the .sln file.

Open Command Line

You can access the command by hitting ALT+Space as well.

You may change this shortcut in the Options Window under Environment -> Keyboard

Look for the command ProjectAndSolutionContextMenus.Project.OpenCommandLine.Default

Execute batch file

You can easily execute any .cmd or .bat file. For files in your solution, a context-menu button shows up.

Execute batch file

Alternatively, the keyboard shortcut

can be used when editing a batch file. This makes it really easy and fast to execute any batch file - even ones that are not part of your project.
