This course is for you

One of the many tools that administrators use on a daily basis is the Windows Command Line / Prompt. Over this course, you'll learn the following skills, which are often used in the real world: * How to create, rename, move and delete files and directories. * The different types of file systems and how to navigate between directories * Setting the date and time on your PC using the date, time and tzutil commands * Managing and formatting disk drives using the Diskpart command * Shutting down, restarting and logging off your machine * Viewing and applying group policy information using the Gpupdate and Gpresult commands * Creating batch files and some of the most common commands used within them. * How to access Windows Management Instrumentation database (WMI) information using the WMIC command Whilst there are some differences between versions of Windows, a lot of these commands haven't changed since Windows 2000, meaning that any prior knowledge of this subject, while not essential by any means, would be advantageous.
