What is Command Prompt?
Command Prompt is actually a command line interpreter. If you have a computer that has the Windows operating system installed on it, you probably have it. This is the way people issue commands to the computer, usually advanced administrative functions, or to troubleshoot some serious computer problems.
This might not make much sense, but Command Prompt works at a different level in your computer than your normal point and click interface does. Supposedly, you will have a higher level of control over the machine, meaning that you can access files and information that you might not otherwise be able to get into through the regular interface.
To use Command Prompt, you will use commands written it the “DOS batch language.”
