Have you ever needed to open a console window while you were using Windows File Explorer? And to have that console already set to the directory you’re showing in explorer right now? Well, StExBar provides that with one simple mouse click. There’s also a hotkey defined for this: simply press Ctr-M to open the console.
StExBar Toolbar for Explorer
StExBar is a free tool for Windows Explorer that provides many useful commands. Moreover, you can add as many custom commands on your own as you like.
Let’s say you needed to have the name or full path of one or more files in another application? Ctr-C will not work. It will copy the file itself and not the file path. StExBar provides two commands, one to copy all selected file/folder names to the clipboard, the other copies the whole paths of all selected items. A hotkey too has been defined for it viz — Ctr-Shift-C, which will copy the selected path.
Activate the Menu or hit the ALT key. Now open an Explorer window > Menu > View > Toolbar > Unlock Toolbar > Select StExBar. Position it where you want it to, and then lock the toolbar again.
The StExBar also provides many useful commands for your everyday use of Windows Explorer. And you can add as many custom commands on your own as you like.
StExBar also provides you with a console. Enter the command you would like to execute into the edit box on the right of the StExBar and hit Enter. The command will be executed in the system console. Moreover, it can also help you rename multiple files at once and make the task of creating new folders still easier.
Apart from the built-in ready-to-use commands, you can also create your commands and add them to StExBar.
