One of the many tools that administrators use on a daily basis is the Windows Command Line (cmd) / Prompt. Over this course, you’ll learn the following skills, which are often used in the real world by computer technicians:


* How to create, rename, move and delete files and directories within the Windows operating system using the command line.

* The different types of file systems and how to navigate between directories using the cmd prompt.

* Setting the date and time on your PC using the date, time and tzutil commands

* Managing and formatting disk drives using the Diskpart command

* Shutting down, restarting and logging off your machine

* Viewing and applying group policy information using the Gpupdate and Gpresult commands, which can often be useful when troubleshooting conflicting group policies.

* Creating cmd batch files and some of the most common commands used within them, which can often save time when dealing with repetitive tasks.

* How to access system information contained within the Windows Management Instrumentation database (WMI) information using the WMIC command and sub-commands.


Whilst there are some differences between versions of Windows, a lot of these commands haven’t changed since Windows 2000, meaning that any prior knowledge of this subject, while not essential by any means, would be advantageous.
