Eclipse Plugin: StartExplorer


When I am working with Eclipse quite a few times I would copy a file’s path or want to open a location in Command Prompt to run some scripts. This is always cumbersome. I have to go to the properties and copy the path, go to command prompt, cd to the location…

StartExplorer is a nice plugin that does all of these and more. The screenshot should say a lot… Options like show resource in explorer, start cmd.exe here topped with keyboard shortcuts. Saves a lot of time for me everyday. You can create custom commands too.

    it’s good plugin. I’m using EasyShell ( because it has support for other OS (Windows, Linux etc.) and lot of shells like Cygwin, PowerShell and custom commands.
