Here's a small tutorial, as to how you can get a help on using command prompt commands in a notepad for quick reference. Click on "Start" menu on the taskbar and then click on "All programs" followed by "Accessories" and then "command prompt" A Command prompt window would open. In the "Command prompt" window that opens, type this:
help>commands.txtThis would create a list of all commands to help you to use the command prompt window. The file is created in whatever directory you are in, at present. By default the directory where the command prompt help is created would be C:\Documents and Settings\Username (Here username would be the name with which you login to windows) To read the Commands.txt file, you can launch Notepad and just open the file from the location where you created it (As mentioned above, if you haven't changed the location, it would be there in C:\Documents and Settings\Username. However, now that you are in the command prompt window, there is an easier way out. In the next command line, enter the command
start commands.txtThis would open the notepad "Command.txt" from its location and you can refer the help commands from there. You have all the commands with their explanation with you.
