You can also open a new Terminal window with the current directory set to a selected directory in Finder by right-clicking and using the app's context menu.

It works, but can you please make it one click

It works as promised. However, I’m hoping you could make it one click to bring up the terminal menu. Currently it needs two clicks. Thanks.
