Open Command Window Here

Get the "Open Command Window Here" app from Microsoft's site. (Along with some other useful "powertoys"). Lets you right-click on a folder in Windows Explorer to open a DOS command prompt in that directory.

Best tips that no one seems to know about?

Some interesting (mainly) Windows tips from the Joel on Software forums.

cool for vi users

Enable vi ksh command line editing - Tech-Recipes.com: "To enable vi editing, type the following command or place it in your .kshrc file:

set -o vi

Then you can use vi commands. Press escape to enter vi command mode then you have access to many vi commands. For example, k will move up through previous commands in the history, /tail will search for the most recent command containing the word tail and pressing n will find the next occurence of that search term.

Once you have found a command that you want to repeat, just press ENTER and it will be run again. You can edit the command with R to replace characters from your current position, x to delete the current character, i to insert characters before the current character, a append characters after the current character, and $ to move to the end of the command."
