Where is the DOS Help Glossary?

I use a lot of command line input and, having recently upgraded from XP, am unable to locate the DOS glossary. Can this be downloaded as a PDF or CHM file fro, somewhere please, or is it buried in the system somewhere?

Have a look here for a full list of DOS commands :- MS-DOS help and commands
OR here for Windows Seven command prompt commands :- Windows 7 Commands - Complete List of Windows 7 Command Prompt Commands - DOS Commands

Command prompt help can also be found by opening "Help and Support" and doing a search for "Command prompt commands"

Hi Archdeacon, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Simply typing help in Command Prompt lists all available commands. Typing help command_name shows additional information on a specific command.

Many thanks for that. It is indeed well hidden in the system then!
