WINPMT

If the WINPMT variable is defined, Microsoft Windows uses it to format the DOS prompt displayed in a DOS window. Using a different DOS prompt from Windows can help you remember that Windows is running and that you need to type EXIT and quit Windows by pressing Alt+F4 before shutting off your computer.

To use the WINPMT environment variable, define WINPMT with the SET command (perhaps in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file) before you start Microsoft Windows. Set WINPMT equal to the prompt you want to use from Windows, using the same formatting you use with the PROMPT command.
