Hello,

Are you asking for a way to run a command line process (like an executable), or do you mean you simply want to open a command line (e.g. "cmd" from the Windows Run menu) that is already set up with a specific directory?

For example i am editing a file.txt, that file directory is c:\users\user\desktop when i open the command prompt("cmd") after i click an option in the software or the editor... that is already set up with the file.txt directory.

Hi Noel,

It used to be that Universal Windows Platform applications like Code Writer were completely sandboxed and didn't have access to do things like this.  For instance, this article explains it:

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/35462100/run-cmd-command-on-windows-10-universal-app-platform

We will make a note of this request, although I'm not sure it's technically allowed yet.  Microsoft has been working to update UWP to allow more native Windows interaction so they could have changed things more recently.  It might require us to update to a newer version of their platform though, if it is even possible.
