25 Most Useful Windows 10 Commands

Posted on 15th December 2017

Although most people use a mouse to click their way around Windows there are a few who would prefer to standout from that crowd and type a command from the command line or Run command box to accomplish their tasks. Not merely does it makes them look like a pro but also it offers the power, flexibility and ease of access. So here is a list of 25 most useful Windows 10 commands for your day to day tasks. You may run these commands from the Command Prompt or from the Run box.

To access the Run box press the Windows key + R in your keyboard. To access Command Prompt type cmd in the run box or search box and press Enter. The Run box will close automatically after a command is executed and you need to open it again for the next command. Therefore if I want to run multiple commands I would open a command prompt.
