By using Windows commands, you can have quick access to tools to configure and fix your computer. They also allow you quick access to Microsoft software embedded within your operating system. Some of these commands can be very useful. Some are not so useful but can be fun to try.

(This procedure is the same for both Windows XP and Vista.)
Now type in one of the following commands to open a program. Note: Some of these shortcuts may not work properly – I’m not sure why.
