Another Command Prompt
Another Command Prompt (aCmd) is an emulation of the Windows Command Prompt written entirely in batch.
It is intended to be a full-featured command prompt alternative to be used when the default Windows Command Prompt is blocked by an administrator, as it is on many restricted computers at schools and workplaces.
For more information, take a look at the project website.
- Download the latest build of aCmd from the releases page.
- Double click on
- Simply type a command, just like Windows Command Prompt.
To add additional settings to aCmd, create a file called
user.bat in the same directory as
aCmd.exe, which will load on startup.
For example, you could add these settings to
cd \ color 0E title My Command Prompt cls
This would set the start directory to the root of the drive, change the color to yellow text on a white background, change the title to "My Command Prompt" and remove the welcome message, respectively.
After checking in the current directory for user.bat, aCmd will then load
%APPDATA%\user.bat if it exists. This is useful if you do not have permission to write to the directory where aCmd is stored.
