The Windows Command line Is My Best Friend...

Don't Pity Me, It's A Good Thing I Swear...

command line windowsI love using the command line - straight up, no mouse. It helps me work faster and more efficiently. There isn't as much distraction and you don't get the urge to just click click click on something.

In Windows, just like most other operating systems, you can do everything from mapping network drives to adding domain or local users all the way back to remote rebooting a pc on your lan or how about over your wan? You can use these commands from the command prompt or run them in a batch file (.bat) to get some automation going!

Does this interest any of you budding admins out there that couldn't operate a computer with out a mouse?

Hit us up in the comments and let us know what you want to be able to do via command line and we will hook you up.

Or tell us what you have been doing via that old dos prompt... Come on impress us...

I dare you
