NOTE!: Whenever something is in quotation marks ("example"), do not include the quotation marks (if you see that you must just type: example)
Step 1: So, what is Batch
To open your CMD, click START > RUN > type "CMD" > OK
(some of you may need to type "CMD.EXE")
(or you can click START > ALL PROGRAMS > ACCESSORIES > COMMAND PROMPT).
Step 2: Now what?
(please try out some of these commands in your CMD).
@echo off - This gets rid of that "c:\documents...etc"
echo - This displays a message, (e.g "echo hello" = "hello") because if you type "hello" into CMD it will interpret "hello" as the command
cls - Clears the CMD of all text.
color - Changes the color (type "help color" for a list of colors).
goto - Goes to a particular word in your text (you will learn more later)
pause - Pauses the command prompt and displays the message: "Press any key to continue..."
and there are a few more we will learn about later.
