[Quick Tip]: Use Windows Explorer address bar for “commands”

Even though you’re a Windows OS user for a very long time I’m sure you would love to know this! Here’s a quick tip that you might unaware of so far.


You can use Windows Explorer’s Address Bar just like you use Run Command:


Under any window while browsing files on your computer just point your cursor and click the Address Bar, or press “ALT + D” (feels better than moving the mouse), and type the command as you would have typed in Run Command form:


hit enter and that’s it. You get a command prompt opened on screen (because of I’ve typed “cmd” ).

I didn’t know this so far even I’m using windows since my childhood 🙂



Session Recap: Learn Building a Website with Node.js and Express.js

Here’s a recap of the session – “Learn Building a Website with Node.js and Express held at C# Corner Delhi Chapter today (2016-06-19, Sunday).

Attendees where mostly new to Node.js architecture and how it works. We started with Node Zero and went to building a web application using node.js and express. We also touched MongoDB  for storing user credentials for authorization purposes. It was a full hands-on with a 4-page PPT 🙂

Here’s the slide I used to Introduce Node.js and Express, and everything else was live hands-on.


Session was full of fun and learning with awesome audience. Thank you C# Corner for the platform and opportunity.




Source code of the demo application is available here at my github repo:


Make sure you have installed MongoDB on your machine and have it started before you expect the application to store user credentials. 🙂

Happy learning 🙂
