I am a very big fan of VS Code. I genuinely believe that it is the best IDE for web development. These days I am coding more in python and my interest has shifted towards python IDE's such as Pycharm and Sublime text.
Pycharm is the OG python IDE and it has all the features that you might want. But, it's a bit bulky and takes a lot of resources.
In some cases, I just want to quickly get up and going with as little friction as possible and Sublime text is the perfect answer for those scenarios.
Why open Sublime from cmd?
As I mentioned above, one of my favourite features of VS Code is that it can be opened from any directory using the command
code . and VS code will open with all the files in that directory. This simple step has made me more productive.
In this article, I will show how to do the same thing using Sublime Text in windows.
STEP - 1: Search for Environment Variables in the windows search
STEP - 2: Select the environment variable option
STEP - 3: Click on the path and then edit
STEP - 4: Add path to your sublime installation
usually, it will be at
C:\Program Files\Sublime Text 3.
After doing this click ok and exit.
STEP - 4: Open sublime from any location
Just go to your desired directory and open a command prompt and input this command.
That's it!! Thanks for reading.

Good job milindsoorya! Thank you! Could you help me, i can't run the python codes in sublime text. When i run the code, "python not found" warning is output. I searched but i can't find a solution. Also i sent two screen shot to make clear.
I think you might have to add python to the windows path variable. You can verify this by typing python in the cmd prompt. If it shows the version and other information then you are all good, else try this:
Add python to your path environment variable
Newer Python 3.7 will be installed at: C:\Users\YourUserNameHere\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python37
Thanks i overcame it, your answer is beneficial.
