Windows 8 Commands (Part 2)


         This post is the sequel of the windows 8 Commands post. To view the previous post, click here Windows8 Commands.

The list of Commands are,


The bootcfg command is used to build, modify, or view the contents of the boot.ini file, a hidden file that is used to identify in what folder, on which partition, and on which hard drive Windows is located.

The bootcfg command was replaced by the bcdedit command beginning in Windows Vista. Bootcfg is still available in Windows 8 but it serves no real value since boot.ini is not used.


The bootsect command is used to configure the master boot code to one compatible with Windows 8 (BOOTMGR).

The bootsect command is only available from the Command Prompt in System Recovery Options.


The break command sets or clears extended CTRL+C checking on DOS systems.

The break command is available in Windows 8 to provide compatibility with MS-DOS files but it has no effect in Windows 8 itself.


The cacls command is used to display or change access control lists of files.

Even though the cacls command is available in Windows 8, it’s being phased out. Microsoft recommends that you use the icacls command instead.


The call command is used to run a script or batch program from within another script or batch program.

The call command has no effect outside of a script or batch file. In other words, running the call command at the Command Prompt will do nothing.


The Cd command is the shorthand version of the chdir command.


The certreq command is used to perform various certification authority (CA) certificate functions.


The certutil command is used to dump and display certification authority (CA) configuration information in addition to other CA functions.


The change command changes various terminal server settings like install modes, COM port mappings, and logons.


The chcp command displays or configures the active code page number.


The chdir command is used to display the drive letter and folder that you are currently in. Chdir can also be used to change the drive and/or directory that you want to work in.


The checknetisolation command is used to test apps that require network capabilities.


The chglogon command enables, disables, or drains terminal server session logins.

Executing the chglogon command is the same as executing change logon.


The chgport command can be used to display or change COM port mappings for DOS compatibility.

Executing the chgport command is the same as executing change port.


The chgusr command is used to change the install mode for the terminal server.

Executing the chgusr command is the same as executing change user.


The chkdsk command, often referred to as check disk, is used to identify and correct certain hard drive errors.
