Open command prompt at current folder

I often need to open a command prompt at the folder I’m viewing in Windows Explorer and I up to now used the registry script available by JR Software (various solutions are also described at Petri IT Knowledgebase).

However, I just realized that (at Vista) in Windows Explorer, if you have the address bar visible (as I usually do – use View menu to show it if not shown), you can write "cmd" at the address bar and open the command prompt at that folder. If you give "cmd" at "Start/Run…" dialog instead it opens at the user’s "root" folder (that Start menu command is not visible by default at Vista, can right click Start button and select "Properties/Customize…" to show it).
