Long long ago, I posted a neat drag and drop trick. Here's another. I regularly find myself in a Windows Explorer window, looking at the files it contains, and wanting a command prompt so I can type some command or another. Today it was regsvr32, but it varies. So what I usually do is open a command prompt, Alt-Tab to the explorer window, highlight the path, Ctrl-C, Alt-Tab back to the command prompt, and then leap through all the command prompt nonsense to paste. Bleah.

Drag it into the command prompt and let go. Nice.
