To start R from the Windows Explorer in a given
directory, prepare and possibly modify the following
script, calling it RunRHere.reg (only part withing ---)

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Run R]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Run R\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\rw1021\\bin\\Rgui.exe\""

Double click this script.
Use the right mouse button on a directory of your choice
and select "Run R"

This Reg-file was tested with Windows 2000. You may have
to adapt it to your version of Windows. Don't forget the
double quotes and the double \\
