Occasionally, I’ll want to use the command line in Windows. Did you know there is a “DOS-like” command line?
Windows tip: Click on Start/All Programs/Accessories/Command Prompt
Optionally in Vista you can click on Start, type in cmd in the Start Search Box and select the resulting cmd icon, or in XP click on Start/Run type in cmd and the Command Line window will open.
p.s. Type exit then press <Enter> to properly close the command prompt window.
