Thursday Tip Day: Keyboard Shortcut for Windows Command Prompt

| Comments

The windows key + R opens the run command in windows, which leads to an easy way of quickly opening a dos prompt and running a command.

In the “open box”, type:

cmd /k your command

to run the command and keep the window open, or:

cmd /c your command

to run the command and close the window.

eg cmd /k ping google.com
