GEEK SQUEAK – Avoid A Long Chain Of Mouse Clicks With These 56 Need To Know Windows Commands (featuring my favorite — msinfo32)

January 8, 2015

There are numerous Windows command-line commands available to the power user. I came across 56 WINDOWS COMMANDS EVERY USER SHOULD KNOW ABOUT that jumped out at me at the Chemtable Software Blog… While you are at the Chemtable site, you may want to check out their FREE utility called AUTORUN ORGANIZER – ADVANCED AUTORUN MANAGER FOR WINDOWS (to manage the autorun priorities on your PC).

Doing the same tasks over and over encourages finding a quicker way to accomplish them. Windows has such a thing as the command-line that allows executing certain applications with a single command avoiding a long chain of mouse clicks. You simply need to press the Win + R combination and type the corresponding command. Here is a list of 56 commands you may find useful in your everyday work with Windows… READ MORE

My favorite command-line command is msinfo32 as shown in the Run dialog box below… I typically run this command, especially on any system that I am not familiar with (when troubleshooting) to acquire a comprehensive overview of the OS, hardware, system components and software environment.

If you are new to command-lines, this one is an easy one to run that is quite useful. Simply press the Win + R combination on your keyboard (to bring up the Run dialog box), type msinfo32, and click on OK.
