Git for Windows adds a 'git bash here' item to the Windows Explorer context menu, when opened on a folder.
It would be really helpful to add the 'git bash here' item for context menus opened in a folder. I for one use this context menu much more often.

Basically, install.iss installs a shell extension to (typically) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\shell . Would need to install a similar shell extension to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\Background\shell. I say, similar, because would need to change the corresponding command subtly (replace %1 with %V).
Please feel free to change what you feel is more correct and submit a pull request or send a patch to the list.

This doesn't work on XP, does it ?
Surely this works on exactly the same platforms as before since I've just added an extra item using the same old method. I don't know whether this includes Windows XP.
According to this comment on SO, doing it this way only works on Windows Vista and above (which is OK for me, this is just FYI).

Do this for both "Git Bash Here" and "Git GUI Here" entries. Simplify the
code along the lines. Fixes issue #84.

Doh, it seems the "Fixes issue #84" needs to go to the commit message's subject (not the body) to make GitHub close the issue automatically.
