About This Class

Learn how to improve productivity using a 30 years old technology from an experienced programmer & trainer. You'll also learn how pros use the run dialog to make ops faster. Every Windows PC contains this wonderful technology so why not leverage for your advantage.  

In this course, I am going to introduce you to the command prompt. Once we've covered the basics of command prompt in about 10 minutes, I will show you some really interesting productivity hacks using batch (.bat) files. 

PowerShell, which is Microsoft's latest effort to combat Linux BASH is a totally different topic. The good thing is that all command prompt commands can be used with PowerShell as well.

Naeem Malik

Automated Testing Engineer

I'm an experienced computer programmer and a creative person. I've worked with many programming languages(Pascal, C, C++, C#, Java, Delphi)  in past two decades. Apart from Windows, I'm well versed with Android & Linux. I worked as a freelance app developer for a while too.

Since I come from the good old days of Microsoft DOS and Novell Netware, I use the keyboard like a pro to increase my speed on the system. 

Self taught in video making, I've got a fairly active Youtube channel where I often put out fun videos.

I also enjoy blogging, write poetry, and play badminton.
