Context menu for "Open Explorer", "Open Command Line", and "System Open"

Open Settings->IDE->External Tools and add definitions like in the attached screenshots.

Or simply open the xml file in Idea's config/tools folder and add the tool definitions like this (while Idea is not running):

I have a different "System Open" using shell32.dll. There is a nice trick with that to get "System Open With...". All Windows only of course.
The Native Neighbourhood plugin is also a quick way to get the same functionality.
