Does anywone know anything cool we could do using command prompt(CMD) in windows XP and Vista..?
I personally found some simple scripts to make the computer restart each time it would open, and there was even one which could reformat the computer...
?Have ou read/made any such scripts? well... post them!
"Net send" when you're in class and bored is a classic one...
I have made a bunch of command like C applications, though most of them are hardly 'interesting'. They do things like manipulate wordlists or check for UPnP on a router.
For Commands related to cmd in any Windows Operating System
Start RUN then type cmd and Click Ok. In command Line just type help and Enter you will get all commands required for normal functioning.
A "cool trick" is to install cygwin, so you can have the power of a Linux command-line on Windows.
Little old, but Windows can't be formatted while the system is in use. Now.. I vaguely remember something called a "floppy" that could run DOS and could be done that way.
Seriously though, floppies... wow. Technology is advancing pretty quickly.
I think the cool trick you could do with the command prompt is the shutdown cmd where you can shutdown the pc on your network if you the specific IP addresses of the computer. I have tried this before when I was still working as IT and if ever somebodies using the production PC which are not related to their work, I can just send a command to that computer and Shutdown that computer. The user will just wonder what happen on his machine.
well you can write anything log file like this
ping ***.***.***.*** >c:\debjit.txt
open the file and you got the result written in a notepad.
i use it and found very good and working fine.
