If you wanted a reference for all the command line tools and utilities available in Windows, “/h” was as good as it got.
Well, that was until last month, when Microsoft published a massive PDF with info on every single terminal command the operating system has to offer.
The doc released on April 17, comes in at 4.6MB and 948 pages and covers the following platforms:
- Windows Server (Semi-Annual Channel)
- Windows Server 2016
- Windows Server 2012 R2
- Windows Server 2012
- Windows Server 2008 R2
- Windows Server 2008
- Windows 10
- Windows 8.1
Although Windows 7 is absent, it’s fair to say a lot of the commands should work on the older OS.
The reference isn’t just limited to commands — it also contains tips for configuring the command prompt window, as well as changes you can make to the Registry to enable and disable features, such as filename / directory completion.
Hyperlinks embedded in the file for each command go directly to the online documentation, so you can always view the most up-to-date content.
