And why the hell would you resort to such contrived contortions as that? Are you masochistic? DoubleClicking an icon will take me less that one second. How long does this sequence take:

 1. Open a command prompt
 2. type "c"
 3. type "d"
 4. type "space"
 5. hover over the folder icon with your mouse
 5.5. Oops, i missed. Go back to step 5!
 6. Mouse click the file "icon"
 7. Mouse drag the file "icon"
 8. Position the mouse over prompt window
 9. Release the "icon" 
10. Press the "Enter" key

Can anybody say "!Ay, caramba!"? 

Besides, you can skip most of those steps by Shift+RightClicking the file icon and choosing "Open Command Window Here". But, why the hell would you EVEN do that when two simple clicks will suffice?
