Chapter 5. Working with the Command Prom... > Using Programs at the Command Prompt

Using Programs at the Command Prompt

You can install and run programs at the command prompt just as you would in MS-DOS. You can run a program in a window or maximize the command prompt window to run the program full-screen. Additionally, you can copy and paste items between programs running in the command prompt window and between programs in the command prompt window and Windows NT windows.

Starting a Program at the Command Prompt

You can start most programs at the command prompt by typing in the name of the program. You may first need to change to the directory in which the program resides before you can start the program. Additionally, sometimes the command to start a program is a shortened form of the name or simply its initials.
