13 Ways Of Using The Command Prompt When It Is Blocked

 Here is a short little guide of a few ways to use the command prompt even when it is blocked.

1. Just try and open it (Start > Run > cmd.exe)

2. Open up Internet Explorer and type in “C:WindowsSystem32cmd.exe” then click run. Most schools don’t block this method. This also should work with other web browsers, but I prefer using it with Internet Explorer.

3. Press F1 on your keyboard, or if that doesn’t go to Start > Help > Windows Help and Support > Type in “Command Prompt” in the search bar > Click on the second option, or the one that says “Open a Command Prompt window” this will open up command prompt.

4. Download this program here: http://www.mediafire.com/?m361pc7d68j212j
This tools also has a variety of other tools in it. (Made in Batch)

5. (For Windows XP) Start > calculator. Then click on help > help topics. Find where it says “calculator” in the top left corner. There should be a “?”. Next, right click on the “?” and select jump to URL and type in the following:


6. Open up a Microsoft Office Program (Maybe Word or Excel. NOTE: This does not work in OpenOffice). Create a hyperlink with the following url address:


7. You can try opening up notepad. Start > run > notepad. Type in the following:

@echo off

Then save this as a .bat file and run it.

8. If you get a message saying “The command prompt has been disabled by your administrator”, then try this method.
Click Start > run >
REG add HKCUSoftwarePoliciesMicrosoftWindowsSystem /v DisableCMD /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

Type that in or copy and paste it in. What happens is that the admin has disabled the cmd with a registry value change and so all we do is change it back by typing the into run.

9. At your Desktop Press Shift and Right Click. Then click on “Open command window here”

10. Open up TaskManager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL or go to Start > type in task manager. Next, click “File > New Task (Run…) > cmd”

11. Open Notepad (Start > Run > notepad), then type in “start” and save it as anythingyouwant.bat

12. Open Notepad (Start > Run > notepad), then type in “cmd.exe” and save it as anythingyouwant.bat

13. Go to

Then, put it on a usb stick, and plug it into the desired computer. Next, run it and there you go! You now have a command prompt to take with you wherever you go!
