Tip: I wish I knew this Windows 10 Command prompt tip years ago – MSPoweruser
To open a CMD window in the same directory as the folder you are viewing, you simply need to type CMD in the directory path area of the File Explorer. There is also a tip which goes in the opposite direction. If you want to open an File Explorer window in the same directory as your command prompt, merely type Start . with the full stop.
