Windows Shortcuts and Run Commands Part 1

Here are some shortcuts for windows that can all be done with the keyboard. Now don't get me wrong there's always the use for a mouse but sometimes it's just so much faster to do things with the keyboard.

I've gone through and compiled a rather extensive list of things that can be done with only the keyboard. So much in fact that I have decided to not post the 12 pages all at once. So come back every day to find more. Some of these you will need the Microsoft Admin Pack installed but if you're reading this you probably already do.

Part 1: The Command prompt and Run Box.

Good ole DOS Commands

CONTROL: Open control panel icons from the MS-DOS prompt. This can be run from the Run Prompt.
RUNAS: Enables a user to execute a program on another computer. This can be run from the Run Prompt.
SHUTDOWN: Shutdown the computer from the MS-DOS prompt. This can be run from the Run Prompt.
TRACERT:Visually view a network packets route across a network.
TREE: View a visual tree of the hard disk drive. I don’t really see much of a use for this but it does look cool to run.
TASKKILL: It allows you to kill those unneeded or locked up applications.
