Some useful window XP commands

window xp by you.

The thought of using the Command Prompt for many Windows XP users, is either a new experience or something that they will never need. But for some, the command prompt is a powerful tool that can be far more useful than many graphical tools available in Windows.
Back in the old days when text-based operating systems are in use like Unix and DOS, the command prompt was the operating system, and not knowing how to use it meant that you could not really use your system without someone experienced in computing holding your hand. This was the era of computing clubs, when getting to grips with your computer required some serious devotion and learning.

Even if you are Administrator of your own computer,and you are aware of command prompt it you are unable to understand the core of windows. I constantly use the command prompt, mostly because I access systems remotely and many tasks can be performed quickly with out the graphics over head.
Get started with command prompt
Entering the Windows XP command prompt
The easiest way to get to the command prompt is by opening up the run command and typing ‘cmd’. To do this: Open the start menu and click ‘run.’ In the text box, type ‘CMD’.
Navigating the Command Prompt
Like the Windows graphical environment you are used to, the command prompt uses drives and directories (folders) to organize data. Each logical drive (C:\, D:\, etc.) has it’s own entry here, and contains its own set of directories and files.

The command prompt window will place you at’C:\>’ by default, meaning you are looking at the logical ‘C:\’ drive, generally the first hard disk on your computer and the one on which Windows is installed.
Here are some useful commands – as attrib,regedit,ping,netstat,recover,tasklist etc.
ipconfigThis tool is mostly used for viewing and troubleshooting TCP/IP problems. It’s capability includes release or renew an adapter IP Address, display and flush DNS cache, re-register the system name in DNS.
To view all TCP/IP information, use: ipconfig /all
To view the local DNS cache, use: ipconfig /displaydns
To delete the contents in the local DNS cache, use: ipconfig /flushdns

ARP – Address Resolution Protocol
View the contents of the local ARP cache table
ARP -a [ip_addr] [-N if_addr]
Add a static Arp entry for frequent accessed hosts
ARP -s ip_addr eth_addr [if_addr]
Delete an entry
ARP -d ip_addr [if_addr]

  6. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
