Tim Sneath on Vista Secrets…

Tim Sneath has just blogged about 3 cool new features in Vista that all power users will want to take advantage of.

Windows Vista Secret #1: Open Command Prompt Here – That faithful old PowerToy is now part of the OS but now automagically maps and unmaps a drive when you choose this on a folder on a UNC path.

Windows Vista Secret #2: Copy as Path – From the same context menu as above, copies the path of the file/folder into your clipboard

Windows Vista Secret #3: Bring Back Start / Run – How to customize your start menu to include the ‘Run…’ menu amongst other things (note the position of Tim’s Start Menu, see I’m not the only crazy person having it on the left hand side!)
