Advice from Typo: Mastering CMD Like a Real Hacker, Part 1 (Colors)
Another series I am now starting, might have to slow down on all of these series, but why tf not.
CMD is short for Command Prompt
Basically what CMD is, is that it is a tool that can perform countless of tasks It can also work with Admin privileges, which in my opinion, is where it works best. Because it doesnt need permission obviously.
You can use it to delete files, create files, add root users, or in this case, admin users and much more, so lets start.
I will be covering a lot in this series, since the average PC user doesnt know about the many features CMD have to offer. Also, there are some very powerful tools in CMD you can use to really piss off a mate of yours who just did something rude to you ;)
I will list some of the areas I know as of right now that i'll be covering
Colors in CMD (obviously, since that is this one duh)
Deleting files in CMD
Deleting & Formatting drives in CMD
Creating folders & documents in CMD
Adding admin users in CMD
So if you are excited, definitely return for the future of this series, I am very excited.
I will start out easy and show you some basic commands you might not know about. First you can actually color the all of the font text in CMD. Really? Yes.
now open CMD, preferably with admin privileges.
Type = color l
This will display a bunch of colors you can choose. I believe there are 14 different colors, from the numbers 0-9 and letters A-F
To choose for example the color green, we would simply type this
and then it will change instantly. However this action right here is not permanent, it will revert back to its original color once you close the CMD and re-open it.
If you want to change you're CMD color permanently, you have to right click next to the command prompt text in the top left corner, and click properties, there you can configure lots of colors also.
Now, if you want a color that has a letter instead of a number, it is the exact same process, just replace the 'l' with the letter that CMD has displayed.
This was a very short article, but there are not more to cover in this section, because changing font colors in CMD are very easy, and can be done in 2 ways.
Hope I will see you for part 2.
