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.
