Great set of commands. Every now and again I have to look up a run command or something else. This site has proved invaluable. Kudos — and keep up the good work. Now is there any way to set a short cut icon directly for that command?
I understand that we can set a short cut icon for cmd prompt, but I dont know how to set a shortcut directly for a specific command.. When I open a shortcut, say to run eclipse, Windows always opens a cmd window to launch the app, and the window always hangs around.
But it would be nice if the shortcut window would immediately close after it launches the app. Is this something I can control? I was always waiting for windows to prompt me to clean up my temp files, etc. That one simple command in your list:. Do you know of a way to have your run history go with you to another pc? Im a network tech and I use a variety of commands all the time, I hate having to retype them each time on a computer I have never been to or that has had the history erased.
I want to make it where it comes with me to whatever PC i am on in the network. I know that I can export the reg file for RunMRU and i can merge it successfully to another pc but I want a logon script or something that does it for me.
I would appreciate any help in this matter, btw matej this is a wonderful thing you have done here and I for one appreciate it a lot. I use many of these cmds but i use WMIC cmds most often. You can try to write your own script. Here are some examples how can you work with registry items through VBScript language. You can also try to import your exported RunMRU key via network.
Thanks matej I will look into the connect network reg option but I will probably have to do this manually for each PC i log into since I dont know from moment to moment which PC i will be working on. Thanks for the response.
Do you know the command to put at the end of a shortcut I create so that it automatically enters the password without stopping for me to do it. Try to execute the program from commandline by following way: If you find password parameter then you can execute the program with it and your password.
Thank you very much I have got big help and this is very userful for me……thans for lot. When we delete any data from the recycle bin it can be revered by data recovery, I want to delete it permanent using run command. Hi,very good and useful shortcuts.
And i have a small question, shall all these shortcuts work in windows7? Use following syntax to remove file permanently in commandline: Dear matej sir, In windows XP Turn off option sometimes gets changed like shutdown. The login window asking you to fill administrator password is probably fake. I would run antivirus software in your place.
Re Riyazul on 14th September. I get that box on resuming from hibernation, telling me my user name is locked and to put the password in. But I have no start-up passwords and clicking OK lets the computer continue.
I just put up with it. One more hit on the Enter key is bearable! One more thing i just want to ask is… How to run remote windows xp system, any excutable file through another windows xp system both system are in network.
With Netsh. It was like I had 3 separate desktops on my screen. Do you know the shortcut keystrokes that might make this happen. Thanks in advance. Try again. If 'thinking' is 'stressful' to you and you can't do anything without a GUI, I feel pity for you. I have used it in 2 ways: You won't be sorry.. I love it. I can't live without them, as I often process large amounts of data. I use to set up BATch files with the configuration commands, and run them with a click on a shortcut icon.
Remember to end each batch file with a "pause" command, that will leave the command window open until you press a key, so you can see any error messages. Works great on a PC disconnected from the network, but sometimes you need a boot disk to fix issues that the admins at the broad level just knee-cap you on.
Most of the caommand lines are great. Also, you can do a answer response for general users if you need some regular tasks done. Powershell pays back big time. I tried cipher w.
I can ping Matt this is a great list of commands! Thanks for the write up. In my opinion it's always good to get ordinary everyday users to use command line functions more often.
Checks your C: This command requires you to reboot your computer, but has helped me repair my clients computers many times when they won't boot. Can be useful to see which devices are connected to a network. Very useful for getting info on system specs when you trying to quickly troubleshoot a problem. Also the netsh winsock reset catalog and netsh int ip reset reset.
I've been using "net use" to map drives of networked CNC machines for easier access the local storage. Shutdown has been around since at least XP.
There are some different switches now, but it remains a darned handy command. I really cant do wtout command prompt even in win 8. More powerful commands like diskpart was not mentioned. You probably don't want people playing around with diskpart unless they know what they are doing.
Or maybe I should say that you shouldn't play around with diskpart if you don't know most of the commands on this list already. I'll share one tip: If it's something like explorer.
You mean Windows has a command line!? You have a pile of functions but if the app in question doesn't have something to click on for what you need you can't do it at all but I guess that's shielded from you because it's to complicated. For example - using the standard windows explorer I copy a pile of files and it's no option to just skip file that already exist, for that I need to run the "cursed" robocopy command.
Switch to Powershell if you want to get even more use out of the Windows Command prompt if you're using Windows 8 it should already be available. It does everything the normal command prompt does, but it comes with a complete scripting environment.
This makes it easier to create tasks, but also means that everything a commmand returns is an Object in stead of just a string. This may sound like a nice gimmick, but it has made my job as a web developer so much easier parsing giant log files, check every x minutes if a website is running, stuff like that. I use powershell every day, but it's not something I'd recommend to non-technical users.
Working at the command prompt is probably asking a lot from people these days. Truthfully, there are gobs and gobs of great ways to handle scripting on Windows if that's something someone needs to do, but if it's an itch you need to scratch, you're probably a developer, IT guy or some sort of engineer and at that point there's no reason to advocate for it. Great article! There were several commands that I hadn't heard of before.
In order to get that information you must plugin the assigned "filetype" of the extension in question into the "ftype" command:. Is that not what you see? Or are we just thinking of different things? Unless you use Linux, then it's far superior and cutting edge.
According to linux geeks. Yeah, I'm pretty sure he's referring just to Windows here, otherwise this is some hardcore bait. As a compsci student I've seen a lot of guys come into my program with that same sentiment towards the commandline -- I didn't see them around for long. Powershell doesn't exist without a reason.
If we go by the masses that only use the desktop for email, some documents and internet browsing then cli isn't needed and they can replace their desktop with a tablet but as soon as you need a little more than basic usage you need CLI, like on servers where powershell is used for a lot of repetitive task, configurations, setups, cleanup, management.
You are mistaken. There is a whole plethora of commands and switches just under one particular command - netsh - which I use very frequently and everyday to automatically configure my dual NIC system. But then that is the problem with most of the current crop of users who have probably never heard of DOS. Well I have been using it since version 3. I use the nbtstat command for looking up names of computers on your network. Comes in handy and goes hand and hand for me when using ping more than half the time.
Another big one that gives tons of great uses is the wmic command that will allow A TON of functionality as long as you get the proper command down to do what you need to. The first one you mentioned, ASSOC, you can really just use within windows already which I find way easier than command line.
I love tasklist and taskkill for use with remote PC's. Especially when you take control of a users computer and see they may be watching a youtube video or on facebook. Instead of informing them that they shouldn't be there I kill the process remotely and they have no idea what just happened. Dan Price. Top Deals. Email Facebook Whatsapp Pinterest Twitter.
