If you're running a Windows PC, knowing some critical DOS commands and how to navigate the Command prompt is a must!
DOS has been around since the early 80's yet is still incredibly helpful when working on a Windows PC. In this course we walk through the basics of using DOS, navigating the command prompt, getting help for any command and cover some great fundamentals.
You don't need to be an expert! We start off with learning the basics and move towards more advanced commands that can be of great help if your Windows computer is not working properly.
We added a small tool that you can use to open a command prompt from whatever location you are. This will allow you to easily open a command prompt with the current folder. This saves tons of time when trying to perform some command on the current folder.
To use it you can download it from our site and run it. The program is a small AutoHotkey script and we provide the source code, so you have full control of verifying what it is doing.
This tool is completely free! You will need to provide your email address to get the download.
During the course, we also show how you can leverage AutoHotkey, a free scripting language, to negate the need of working from the command prompt.
While it may be hard to believe, sometimes things are actually easier to fix in DOS compared to working with Windows GUIs. We cover some networking commands that will help troubleshoot some of the tricky topics.
We also show you how you can easily export your DOS window commands to a text file or to the clipboard (both of which are extremely helpful!)
If you're having issues with your hard drive we also walk you through how to "check it" as well as format it.
DOS has some pretty powerful commands to copy and move files. We even cover how to search for files that contain text as well as use a regular expression in your search!
Start learning DOS today! We never know when Windows will fail and learning the critical commands ahead of time will save you a lot of stress (not to mention $)
Who this course is for:
- Those that want to learn critical commands to help them work from the DOS command line
- People that troubleshoot windows computers
- Windows users that want to be able to access their computer when Windows will not load
I've been using AutoHotkey for over 10 years. I've given ~60 webinars on AutoHotkey and have a weekly podcast discussing Robotics Process Automation with AutoHotkey.
I also have over 850+ videos on YouTube teaching people how to automate the mundane with AutoHotkey.
I'm not a programmer by trade so I don't explain things in a way that is ridiculously complicated.
I love helping people automate their daily tasks! AutoHotkey is a "game changer" and will save you an amazing amount of time. Start learning to work Smarter, not Harder today!
I'm an instructor and programmer. Have been creating programs for more than 10 years in a scripting language called autohotkey.
I also have experience being a trainer for different companies.
My hobbies are: reading, playing chess and playing the guitar.
I hope to learn new skills in udemy as well as presenting my experience to others in an easy to understand manner.
