For files, it is easy to customize a callback after drag and drop file into command window, as shown here.
However, for folders, drag and drop a folder into command window leads to the call of cd().For example, if I drag and drop the folder E:\Downloads\tmp into command windows, then
cd('E:\Downloads\tmp')
is executed.
Can I change cd() to my own function?

It seems that I can not do this. From the example of openext, drag-and-drop and double click share the same callback function. If I overload the callback of drag-and-drop, then I can not double click to enter a folder in Current Folder Window.
