A new tutorial titled How to create a command-line toolkit for Windows was added by Lawrence Abrams. Please use this topic to discuss any aspect of this tutorial.

A brief excerpt of the tutorial can be found here:

If you are a system administrator, IT professional, or a power user it is common to find yourself using the command prompt to perform administrative tasks in Windows. Whether it be copying files, accessing the Registry, searching for files, or modifying disk partitions, command-line tools can be faster and more powerful than their graphical alternatives. This tutorial will walk you through creating a command-line toolkit that contains useful programs and utilities that can make administering and using your computer easier and more efficient. The tutorial will also walk you through configuring your PATH environment variable so that these tools are available whenever you need them without having to specify the complete path to your toolkit folder. At the end of the tutorial we have listed a variety of command-line programs that are included with Windows or are by 3rd party developers that you can use as part of your command-line toolkit.

We hope you find this tutorial helpful.

See the blue letters in the original topic that say "How to create a command-line toolkit for Windows"? That's the link to the tutorial.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)

A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

If you're not sure what command to use, create an elevated command prompt (C:\Windows\System 32) and write "help"


C:\Windows\System 32>help


If you want to know the options of a specific command use C:\Windows\System 32> yourspecificcommand /?
