5 Windows Command Prompt Tricks You need to Know


well first of all you need to start your command promt as an admustrator

below are the 5 tricks we use in the command prompt that you might not know and 
need to know. so just read on to find out what they are.(this should be fun)

1. Send a Command’s Output to the Clipboard

Note: This will work for any command.
How many times have you used the ipconfig command only to copy and paste the output?  
You will never have to do that again as you can simply send the output directly to the 
clipboard.
ipconfig | clip

2. Open Command Prompt From a Folder

Have you ever opened the command prompt and entered endless cd commands trying to 
get to a folder ? If the answer is yes then you will pleased to know that you can actually
 save a lot of time by opening a command prompt within a folder from Explorer. All you 
have to do is hold shift while right-clicking on a folder and the option will appear in the 
context menu.

3. Command History

You most likely have been pressing the up key to get to your previous commands, but this 
can be a pain when you are trying to track down a particular command. One other way you 
can view your past command is to use the doskey command.
doskey /history

4. Drag and Drop Files to Change the Current Path

Another neat trick if you are not a fan of opening a command prompt from the context 
menu is the ability to drag and drop folders onto the prompt and have it automatically 
enter the path of the folder. You’ll need to type the CD command and then drag the 
folder over to actually change the path, but you can use the same technique for a lot of 
different commands.

5. Run Multiple Commands In One Go

Our final trick of the day is one that many command line geeks may already know, the 
ability to run multiple command at once by linking them with double ampersands. 
You can do this with any commands and you can link up as many as you want:
ipconfig && netstat
