Getting to Command Prompt

Getting to Command Prompt

To take advantage of Command Prompt and all of its many useful commands, you need to start a Command Prompt session. Windows Vista (as usual) offers a number of different ways to get to Command Prompt:

  • Select Start, All Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt.

  • Press Windows Logo+R (or select Start, All Programs, Accessories, Run), type cmd in the Run dialog box, and click OK.

  • Create a shortcut for %SystemRoot%\system32\cmd.exe on your desktop (or some other convenient location, such as the taskbar’s Quick Launch toolbar) and then launch the shortcut.

  • Reboot your computer, press F8 to display Windows Vista’s Advanced Options Menu, and select the Safe Mode with Command Prompt item.
