Some hidden features of command prompt

SHARE:


Hello, readers I am here with an important informatory post on Command Prompt. With many softwares having dynamic and exotic interfaces using command prompt is a old-fashioned thing. But in fact the reality is that these dynamic interfaces tend to bar you from going deep and customizing or tailoring yourself at micro level. They do that by themselves thus limiting your access. As you all know that if you want something best then the only person that can do that in the whole world is you yourself. This is as sweet truth as the bitter gourd.

 In this post I am going to explain all about some hidden features and tasks that this interpreter can run. So why to wait? Let's start to explore the command prompt. More you go deep, the more you gain. Keeping this our motto let's begin our venture.
First of all open (and the most important) Command prompt with administrator privileges because some command that will be discussed here will need so. After that go serially to the under given tips and features to unhide their potential.




>> Enable Quick edit mode: Are you very missing the copy-paste function in the command prompt? Don't miss so much this feature is present here also (for your surprise). Just right click on the topmost part (where name command prompt is written besides mini/maxi-mise and cross button is located. As soon as you right click on that you see a menu pop-up select properties from the same. Then after you will see a new window. Just check the box that is named "Quick Edit Mode". Now you can select any text or command as you do in general. After selecting just right click two times wherever you want to paste. There is no need of pressing ctrl+c or other. Only try to copy and paste a single line at a time.
>> Check default programs:  To check which file type is opened by which program by default you can use command prompt as a powerful tool (for individually each type of file). For performing this a command is there - just type "assoc" without quotes and hit enter key. No sooner that you press the carriage return key (enter key), you have the list of all file types identified uniquely by their extension with its corresponding program that will open it by default.
>> Get PC drivers list: Yes....... don't underestimate the powers of command prompt once again. You can also see the list of all installed drivers through a command in command prompt. To do this you have to just type a command viz., "driverquery" without quotes and press enter key. As soon as you press the enter key you will see a screen full of drivers - their name, publisher's name and date & time of installations.
>> Scan & Repair system files: What!!!!!!!(I can imagine your expression a little bit).  Just keep yourself on the Earth for some moments till the post ends(Just kidding, please don't take it on heart). Command Prompt features a command that enables itself to scan all the system files and repair the repairable ones. Just start the scan by entering sfc/scannow” without quotes and press enter key. A scan start and it will take about 30 to 45 minutes depending upon your system capabilities.

>> Get network details: With the help of command prompt you can certainly get the list of connections, your IP address, connection state of WiFi, LAN and much more. In short it deals about most network related query.

To check the list of connections and their state type "ipconfig" and press enter key.
>> Check IP address of any website: You can check manually without any help of other means through of course Command Prompt. For this a command named "nslookup" is used.
For instance, type nslookup google.com
>> Execute multiple commands all at one go: Command Prompt also features the ability to enter many commands simultaneously. For this you have to use "&&" between different commands.
For instance, type and press enter - ipconfig&&assoc&&cls (this command will execute one by one automatically with first come first execute principle and in this cas your output screen will become blank a last).
>> Save your query results(outputs) to a text file: Lastly to conclude with you can save the output of your command in a text file for this use ">drivename:\filename.txt".
For instance, type this command and press enter: ipconfig&&assoc&&drivrquery

Hope you find this post informative and interesting as well.
