  2. Right-click the cmd (folder) key, and click Permissions.
  3. Click the Advanced button.
  4. On “Advanced Security Settings,” click the Change link next to “Owner”.
  5. Type your account name in the provided field, click Check Names to verify you’re typing the account name correctly, and click OK.
  6. Check the Replace owner on subcontainers and objects option.
  7. Click Apply. Click OK.
  8. On “Permissions,” select the Administrators group.
  9. Under “Permissions for Administrators,” select Allow for the Full Control option.
  10. Click Apply. Click OK.
  11. Inside the cmd (folder) key, right-click the HideBasedOnVelocityId DWORD, and click Rename.
  12. Change the DWORD name from HideBasedOnVelocityId to ShowBasedOnVelocityId, and press Enter.

Once you complete these steps, using the Shift + Right-click combo on a folder will display the “Open command window here” option.

At any time, you can revert the changes following the same instructions, but on step No. 11, make sure to rename the DWORD from from ShowBasedOnVelocityId to HideBasedOnVelocityId.
