This tool extends explorer with functionality of a command prompt.
Implemented as a band object completely in C#. Demonstrates COM Interop and P/Invoke, windows hooking and API interception.

Finally you can run all these .Net SDK tools and ‘Hello World!’ programs without leaving explorer shell.

The most powerful is a button with a 'Script' icon on it. It has a drop down menu where you can select a command you like to be executed. It even knows how to substitute '{0}' for the name of the current files selected in explorer.

Here is when it can be useful. Let's say you want to install your assembly into a 'Native Images Cache'. With Command Bar it is as simply as selecting your assembly in explorer and clicking on 'ngen {1}' menu item. It also works just fine for multiple selected files (use {0} instead).

Now you can compile your .cs or .vbs files without leaving a comfortable explorer shell. And yes, you can change this menu and scripts the way you like them. It is as simple as editing a text file in a Notepad.
