Okay, so you want to try out some cool command prompt tricks, but you cant seem to find out how to actually open command prompt. (This would be the case in most schools, or workplaces.) This instructable will show you how to get a command prompt window up and running.
This works in Windows XP.
If you do not have a blocked computer, or if you are an administrator, go to step 3 and read the last section.
I am not liable for anything that you may do with this information, i am just telling you how to get the screen open, i am not telling you to use it in an improper manor.
Step 1: Creating the File.
Firstly, open up notepad. This can be found at:
start> all programs> accessories> notepad
Once your in notepad, type in the words
"command.com" (with no quotations)
Step 2: Saving the File.
To get the file to work, go to:
file> save as...
and then save the file as
"command.bat" (without the quotations)
Now, make sure that you save it as .bat on the end, because this is the most vital part.
If you want, you may name it anything, but you must keep the .bat on the end. So it could be:
Step 3: Your Now Finished!
Now, go to wherever you have saved your ".bat" file and double click it to open command prompt.
If you do not have a blocked computer, or if you are an administrator, you can just go to
start> run> and then type in cmd
This will open a window. If it does not work, then used steps 1 and 2.
