Ever want to bring up windows explorer from command prompt?

It’s super simple actually, just type “start .” without quotes. That will bring up the current directory in windows explorer. If you want to bring up another directory outside of the one you are in, just type “start C:\users\” as an example. If you want a network share: “start \\10.10.10.33\share\” and hit enter. Easy 🙂

Gigabyte P35X V6 review vs my Desktop PC with 970 GTX
