Disable Command Extensions (For Current User).

By using this tweak you can control whether command extensions are enabled or disabled.

Tweak for : Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows 2000, Windows Vista
Command extensions are used to change the behavior of various standard command processor functions such as CD, MD, DEL, PROMPT and SET. They are enabled by default. By using this tweak you can control whether command extensions are enabled or disabled.

The command extensions involve changes and/or additions to the following commands: DEL or ERASE, COLOR, CD or CHDIR, MD or MKDIR, PROMPT, PUSHD, POPD, SET, SETLOCAL, ENDLOCAL, IF, FOR, CALL, SHIFT, GOTO, START (also includes changes to external command invocation), ASSOC, FTYPE.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. Now, right-click and modify the DWORD value “EnableExtensions”, in the right panel, to disable command extensions. However, if you want to get back to the original state and enable command extensions, change the value to “1”.

The changes take effect after a restart or logoff.
