Windows 7: Command Prompt Magic

Command Prompt Magic

Hi All

I absolutely love command prompt. If possible, i would run everything from there. I like it more than the gui's, makes me feel clever or something. Anyways, can anyone tell me the following:

1. How do I restart windows in safe mode using cmd? And thus eliminating the annoying f8 f8 f8 f8..
2. How do I start msconfig and computer management from cmd?

Does anyone know of a good command prompt 'bible' if I may put it like that? On the web there are bits and pieces of command line utilities but not a full arsenal of commands such as: diskpart commands, system restore from cmd, copying and creating boot partitions etc from cmd, all those helpful tools people use everyday.

Thank you very much

Hello Dave,

Here you go for Safe Mode.

Safe Mode


You would type what's bold below for the others and press enter.

msconfig = msconfig
Computer Management = compmgmt.msc

Hope this helps,
Shawn

FWIW: the included Powershell is a dos like powerful command line tool.
Really great to accomplish neat things. As usual, read the doc and use the examples.
