    If you have windows95 (not sure about later releases) the help command doesn't exist so you might want to look up a tutorial if that is the case.

    Thumbs up

    I know that DOS is going away from us, but as to why we would use it, I have a very pertinent answer! I bought a new hard drive this weekend, and the dang installation software didn't work...so I used DOS command to install, partition and format. Now this may sound like bragging....It is. I am a complete newbie, and in December I had never even opened my tower. So I was thrilled to be able to use DOS to take care of an aggravating situation....To me, DOS is very simple and straightforward, but then I don't have a lot of experience with other programming languages.

    You hit the head on the nose. Knowing DOS is a big help when dealing with a reformat or new drive set-up. I still use it alot, probably more than I should.

    net user test 123 /add add an user in your computer with username test and password 123

    net user test /delete delete an account in your computer

    netstat -an shows the connections and your open ports in your computer

    net use computer_name open and session with another computer in your network

    nslookup www.yahoo.com resolves the domain names in ip (this tests your dns settings)

    Ping 127.0.0.1 test if an computer is alive in an network (127.0.0.1 is the ip adress of the other computer)

    ipconfig shows your ip configuration

    md test create and directory test
    cd test let you enter to the directory test
    dir shows all files and folders in test directory
    cd.. exit from an directory
