How To Open Command Prompt In Windows 11

Command Prompt is a wonderful non-graphical shell tool for doing a variety of tasks in Windows 11.

Command Prompt allows someone to issue text based commands (remember, non graphical) to the operating system.

A few tasks that can be achieved with command prompt include setting the current drive, changing the current working directory, and changing user passwords.

   
   

In Windows 11, hover your mouse over the start menu (four blue squares) and then click the start menu.

Once the start menu has loaded, click the Type here to search box and type “command prompt” in the box.

You will then see a command prompt label appear.

Click the command prompt label and icon to open command prompt.

 

   

Tip: Right click on the Command Prompt label and icon then select “Run as administrator” in order to perform a command requiring a higher level privilege. An example of this requirement would be in using the net user command to change a user password.
