Open Powershell from from windows explorer

To open Powershell starting with the path of the folder you are working in, hit alt-D to select the address bar and type powershell. The other way around, to open an explorer window from powershell, type ii . or explorer . (note the dots).

Similarly, to open an cmd window, shift-right click > 'Open command window here' or type 'cmd' in the address bar and to go back: explorer . (again, note the dot). ii seems to be Powershell specific.

It couldn't be easier! And who knew that this was all built into windows already!
