Microsoft Windows Command Prompt

Microsoft Windows Command Prompt

Command Prompt is the command-line interpreter supplied by Microsoft Corporation on OS/2, Windows CE and on Windows NT-based operating systems, including Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7, Server 2003 and Server 2008. It has an executable name cmd.exe and it is the analog of COMMAND.COM in MS-DOS and Windows 9x systems or usually called MS-DOS Prompt, or of the UNIX shells used on Unix-like systems. Unlike COMMAND.COM, which is a DOS program, cmd.exe is an original Windows application generally working in Win32 console. This permits it to take advantage of features available to original programs on the platform that are otherwise unavailable to DOS programs. At first, Therese Stowell developed the initial version of cmd.exe for Windows NT. Though some old DOS commands are not supported or have been changed, cmd.exe still has a greater number of built-in commands. The cmd.exe remains an element of Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, and Windows 8.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .wpf files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .wpf. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
