Introduction: Simple Way to Access CMD at School!

Picture of Simple Way to Access CMD at School!

Here I am going to show you the simplest method for accessing Command Prompt at School. I use this method myself, and hasn't failed me yet. I hope you enjoy this. 
* I do not claim responsibility for any wrong doing or consequences this method causes. This can get you into trouble, and you do so at your own risk

Step 1: Step 1

Picture of Step 1

To start, go to program files and look for notepad.

Step 2: Step 2

Now, in Notepad, type in "", without the talking marks. 

Step 3: Step 3

Now, go to Save As, and name it as command.bat. Make sure you add .bat, or this will not work.  Also be sure to change the file format below from .txt to All Files. 
Thanks to a commenter for picking this up

Step 4: Done!

YAY, you have now made a Command Prompt that will work at School, no matter how many restriction your Administrators have set. Have fun, and please give me a good rating !!

you can use this on a computer you do have acsess to and transfer to a usb drive then move to the pc your trying to access then run it or just transfer the whole cmd file also check out rufus programs as runnig systems if youknow what you doing you can get access

they unlocked the batch files at my school but when i opened it up its says "command has been blocked and press any key to continue" and when you press any key it automatically turns off :( help?

literallymelvin (author)Ramzes2017-01-13

Save this as a batch file:

@echo off

break off

title C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe



set /p cmd=C:\Enter Command:



goto cmd

HOly omg this worked, made an account just to say that it worked lmao

That still comes up that it is blocked by admin for me any other ideas?

I tried to do a code REG add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Wlansvc" /v Start /t REG_DWORD /d 3 /f and it said that

Error: access denied is there some way of fixing it so that i could use the code???

rukuplayz2003 (author)2017-06-25

also sorry for the spellings

acezxv (author)2016-02-15

New schools have blocked even that. But you can still run some commands (not all) by typing them into search (click windows).

JackO57 (author)acezxv2016-08-14

My previous school had so many security holes it was unbeleivable.

literallymelvin (author)JackO572017-01-13

Same. I wiped an entire server and they couldn't figure out what happened.

HalpAttackSchool (author)2015-12-19

Hey, i have a school called farneyclose, its a boarding school in the UK

i have used command prompt there many times but to be honest its not so useful, not even commands like cmdkey or ipconfig

so i was wondering if you could find a way to open up powershell at schools

i don't know how to access because probably file not banned itself but system32 and Start then r are both banned so how would i open up windows powershell

Type powershell in cmd

e1ioan (author)2011-12-05

or.. Start->Run and type "cmd" (no quotes) and press OK.

dlboreland (author)e1ioan2011-12-05

Yes, that works too. The only thing is that most schools block Run so that students can not access certain programs.

my school blocked run, so i have new problem, i don't want command prompt i want powershell, how how how do do do do i i i i get get get get powershell

running at school, i need i need

It should be in system32, just navigate to it and search powershell in the search bar.

How do I keep it open? it keeps closing

cool9999 (author)2016-11-06

mine window keeps appering and suddenly disappering.

theBrownNinja made it! (author)2016-10-16

This didn't work for me because my school admin was a bit smarter and disabled the ability to open "UNIC" files. (I'm not sure what all that entails, but it seems to remove all hope of me getting into command prompt.) Thanks for the trick, though- I'm sure it'll work if the IT department of other laptops I might use aren't as clever as my school's IT dept. :D

Can the school administrators see if i have been on cmd at school?

JackO57 (author)tlain1232016-08-14

Probably but unless you give them reason to check who's accessed cmd then I doubt you'd be found out

Bongmaster (author)2011-12-05

u missed out to make sure 'file types' is set to 'all files' in the save as window, or u may end up with 'command.bat.txt' which would be useless.

dlboreland (author)Bongmaster2011-12-05

I will fix that now, thank you

213533jack (author)dlboreland2015-12-11

yo i cant seem to save the file at my school got any advice?

JackO57 (author)213533jack2016-08-14

What does it say when you try to save it?

ASTRA. (author)2016-07-19

actually you can just put

start(inside the txt file)

save as a .bat

have fun

billnye333 (author)2015-12-06

actually this is a much easier way
just type this in:
@echo off
break off
title C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe

set /p cmd=C:\Enter Command:

goto cmd

then save it as cmd.bat under all files then open it and there you go

kkidd-1 (author)billnye3332016-04-18

When I open it, then what do I do? It's asking me
C:\Enter Command:

WillH55 (author)kkidd-12016-06-22

put echo on

AntheasD (author)2016-06-06

it will open it then automatically close it without me making it close to i am not able to close it

AntheasD (author)AntheasD2016-06-06


DavidBOSS21 (author)2016-05-10 didn't work at all it just opened it...

JamesW223 (author)2016-02-18

thank you you are the messiah
i can now take over admin

creeperBK (author)2016-01-25

Thank you

AlienGutz (author)2015-07-27

I opened it and It just closed

Bowier (author)2013-02-14

Hmm... Doesn't work for me, we can't open batch files to start with. I found that if you compress then unzip the file you can open it, but then there is stuff saying you can't access it because you don't have admin privileges. :(

dayarra (author)2012-09-22

i love ya man!

thanatos370 (author)2012-04-02

My batch file didn't work. The system didn't recognize it as a command.

Antonio.SKUXX (author)2011-12-11

.....This actually worked thanx dlboreland.....

dlboreland (author)Antonio.SKUXX2011-12-12

Your welcome. Be careful what you do on it, your techies might get very defensive

thegeeke (author)2011-12-06

No it's not true that it will get you in no matter what measures your admin puts in place. Most admins worth their pay will block .bat files as well as the command prompt/run box. But in some instances it will work.
