Windows 8 Command Prompt Settings

Jul 29, 2013

I often format my laptop and uses virtual machine as well. So I had a batch (.bat) file to change all windows setting through registry. This batch file also changes command prompt screen size, buffer size and quick edit mode. However this does not work on Windows 8 command prompt setting.

Registry use to change the setting are:
- HKCUConsole\%SystemRoot%_System32_cmd.exe
- HKCUConsole\%SystemRoot%_SysWOW64_cmd.exe

Just wondering is there any way to change the setting in Windows 8 using batch file?

Command Prompt Needs To Run Anything As Admin

May 15, 2014

I seem to be having a problem when command prompt needs to run anything as an admin.

This happens whenever it feels it needs to do so, like when setting a program to run as admin myself, or running an installer, like the setup for firefox (I'm in chrome right now, but I happen to prefer firefox)

Basically, whenever it needs to run anything, it'll open up to the user account controls window in this picture:

Upon clicking yes, it opens the command prompt you see in the left of the image for a split second, then closes. (it took many attempts to get a clear shot using printscreen, and I did edit it to have the UAC prompt in the same image to save space)

I'm guessing a manual regedit of some kind, as running any program is obviously blocked by the problem itself. (I cannot install any fixing programs, and anything that needs to run as admin to work is out as well).

I need to execute the command prompt as admin. When I try to do it the command prompt window doesn't open and there are no errors. If I run the command prompt without admin privs it works, but I then can't do what I need to do in the admin window.

How To Exit Safe Mode With Command Prompt

Sep 15, 2014

I had to enter Windows 8 in safe mode with command prompt to do something. After I did that, I pressed alt+F4 to exit the command prompt, so now I have a complete black screen with a cursor that I can move. I want to exit the safe mode now, to reboot again in normal mode. However, there is nothing to click on, alt+F4 doesn't work, ctrl+alt+del doesn't work, etc. There are some things that do work (for example win+P to connect a second screen, but I don't need that...). When I press the power button, it just goes to sleep. So I just want to get out of this situation. How to bring up command prompt again or shut it down completely ...

Want To Close Window When Deleting Folder

Oct 16, 2013

I am a long time user of XP and in the past year have taken the plunge into 8. Whenever I delete a folder in XP, if that folder is open in an explorer window, the window automatically closes. When I delete a folder that has a window open in 8, the window simply navigates to the default explorer location. When I an doing folder maintenance, I am basically ending up with a whole bunch of open windows.

Any setting I can change to make the window of a deleted folder close automatically?

How To Close A Window And Return To Desktop

Apr 11, 2013

Once something opens, even from desktop, it doesn't have a little red x in the corner and there doesn't seem to be a way to close it and return to where I was before. I can only either hit the windows button and go back to the page with all the apps, or swipe it down and do the same. But say I'm on desktop, I've got the internet open and I open up my pictures and double click a picture to see it larger- it then fills the whole screen and there's no way to go back to my desktop and what I was doing by just CLOSING it, rather I have to go back to the app page and then click on deskptop. Is there a way round this?

Cannot Open Run Prompt As Administrator Windows 8

Aug 1, 2013

When I right click on run and select open as administrator, I get the following error: file:////C:/users/pc/appdata/roaming/microsoft/windows/start menu/programs/system tools/run.lnk The parameter is incorrect.

It doesn't give this message when trying run anything else as an administrator as far as I can tell, but it definitely will not let me open the run prompt as an administrator, which presents some obvious problems.

I have the only user account on this computer so it does have administrator privileges although they are not invoked simply from opening the run prompt normally.

DOS Prompt In Windows 8 - Wrong Syntax

Jul 29, 2013

I haven't done a DOS copy command for quite some time. I'm wondering if I have forgotten something or is it different using Windows 8 which is my OS. Today I was trying to copy some files from the DOS prompt but got messages of either "wrong syntax", unable to "find file" or"could not find destination". Dose the command prompt work the same in Windows 8 as it always has or am I apparently doing something wrong?

New Windows 8 Asus Laptop Booting To Grub Prompt?

Feb 19, 2014

This is a brand new windows 8 system that was sold to a customer. He brought it in for being unable to boot into windows after having used it for a couple of weeks, and he demonstrated the issue to me. It literally just boots to grub. This customer is a basic windows user. No experience with linux or dual booting. He uses it for email. I have never come across this particular problem before, so I ran the normal partition tools to see if the table looked proper for a windows 8 machine. Everything checks out ok, however it is still booting to a grub prompt!!

Windows 8.1 - Keyboard Doesn't Work On Startup And UAC Prompt

Nov 17, 2013

When Windows 8.1 was released, I upgraded my current Windows 8 installation. Overall, it has been a great experience. However, I've run into a couple of strange problems that I have never had before.

The first problem is, whenever I boot into Windows 8.1, my USB devices don't work right away (keyboard and wireless mouse). It doesn't matter if I restart my computer or have just turned it on. In order to get the keyboard to respond, I have to unplug and plug back in the cord. It's very annoying to have to do this every time I boot Windows.

The second problem is, while Windows is logging in, I get a UAC prompt. The UAC prompt says "Service Control Manager Configuration Tool". This prompt also happens every single time I log on, which is also very annoying.

I have checked my startup programs and have found nothing obvious that could solve these problems, but maybe I'm missing something.

Have these problems happened before? I really would prefer not to do a clean install since everything else is working perfectly and it's not slow at all.
