Hi all,

Having used linux pretty extensively for a time now, I've come to appreciate 
two things in particular, namely the feature of right-clicking on the desktop 
and to have a shortcut available there to open a terminal, or speaking 
Windowese - a command prompt. The other thing I miss, is a way to close the 
said command prompt by issuing a Ctrl-D on the keyboard, as is possible in 

Would anybody know of a tweak to achieve these two things in WindowsXP?

I know of the Microsoft Powertoy "Open Command Windows Here"-extension, but 
that one only works in Windows Explorer and other file managers.

Any ideas guys? Thanks in advance.
