Well CMD.exe is used to execute commands like
echo Hello!
which displays "Hello!"
You can also make small programs, like this simple loop:
@echo off
echo Hello!
goto a
This is used to write text to a file:
@echo off
title Text to File
echo Hello! >>> hello.txt
echo Done!
For a full list of commands, go to CMD.exe and type in
You should see a list of commands.
to exit, type
More useful command are:
taskkill "program.exe"
To see the current time, type
time /t
If you type

Also a lot of the commands like the above have little manuals that tell you about command switches and variables.

They can be accessed via command /? more then likely.

So this net use /? would display the available command line arguments for the command net use.

which will be similar to this:


net use [DEVICE [/HOME[{PASSWORD | *}] [/DELETE:{yes | no}]]

net use [/PERSISTENT:{yes | no}]
