Some useful scripts for windows.

Stoyan of has found the joy using javascript for scripting in the OS

I’ve put up a few scripts I find useful in windows (download at the end of the article):

  • addpath.js – Add a path to the registry path.
  • dt.cmd – Change to desktop folder.
  • e.cmd – Open explorer in current or specified folder.
  • regpath.js¬† – Output the path stored in the registry.
  • updateenvironment.js – Updates running apps with any changed settings in the registry.

And a couple that use python and pywin32:

  • – Copy the current working directory to the clipboard
  • – Copy the current path to the clipboard

All of have acompanying batch files to run them, I generally have everything in a folder c:\usr\cmd, but they should work from anywhere in the path.
