Chapter 3: Windows XP Command Line Interface (CLI)
By James Pyles/ Tcat Houser
Windows 98 SE was the last major Microsoft operating system to be built on top of a DOS shell. (Windows Me still used DOS but would not allow command line access and was not well received). While there in fact is no such thing as a DOS command line in any Windows operating system built on NT Technology including Windows XP, the command line is hardly dead. Like Windows NT and Windows 2000, Windows XP possesses a command line emulator which can be used to monitor, configure and troubleshoot the computer and the network.
The basics of the Windows Command Line are listed elsewhere in this text. This section focuses on the 31 CLI45 features and utilities that have been introduced with Windows XP. To get started click on Start -> Run, then type in cmd in the run field. This will open a command window. Now were ready to get started.
