Windows Command Prompt and Run Commands

167 KB | 4 files | null DOC,null PDF

Despite the sophistication of the Windows user interface, sometimes it is just easiest to pop out to the Command Prompt and execute a quick batch command. The cheat sheet of Run commands will make repetitive chores a snap.

Windows Command Prompt Commands

Use the Windows Command Prompt window to run various commands in the Windows OS. These commands perform useful functions like deleting files, showing folder structure, or getting network performance information. The help command may be one of the most useful of all, as it can be run to both output a list of all commands and be modified to show the help for a specific command.

To go to the Command Prompt, open Run (Windows KEY + R) and type cmd, or click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.

Windows Run Dialog Commands

Use the Windows Run dialog commands to open programs, folders and Internet resources. For instance, by running the calc command from the Run dialog, the Calculator program opens. These commands act as timesaving shortcuts because you don't have to click so many icons in the Windows interface to get to the items you want to use.

To open the Run dialog, click Start and select Run. You can also use the shortcut keystroke (Windows KEY + R).
