Command Prompt CommandsAs we know that command prompt is a non-graphical interface that allows user to directly interact with operating system. With the help of Commands, a user can solve (troubleshoot) many OS related problems. Today, mostly peoples using OS based on GUI (Graphical User Interface) as it is best way for end users to understand (run) computer and to interact with computer. But, they can’t do anything with help of GUI as commands are still the heart of the OS, which are mainly running at the core level of the OS. To perform chief tasks directly with OS, all they need is to learn commands. Commands are the main stage designed for professional (advanced) users. So, here on this page, I am representing some useful important commands based on Windows Operating System.
