If you go into Command prompt mode and type Help - it wiil give you a list.

If you want help on a particular command type Help Command

Where Command is the name of the command

I went to Start>Run>Typed Help, I got a millisecond of a DOS window open and shut. Couldn't read anything. Could you write out the path for Command Prompt Mode? Please!

Don't use Command prompt like that for this purpose - select it from the menus - Programs - Accessories - Command Prompt.

Then a DOS window will open and stay open until you close it.

Obviously I do not know what I am doing. I have got to the Dos window, but I have tried several commands and got nowhere. I do not know what to type. I'd like to find the Command Prompt list of commands to copy.

Type help and you'll get a list of all the commands.

"I have tried several commands and got nowhere. I do not know what to type"

Well - what you type depends what you want to do! - which is?

If you want help on a particular command type Help Command - eg for help on the DIR command type help dir

At the end of all typing at a dos prompt you must hit the Enter key to activate what you've just typed

PS - Help and Support tells you nearly everything there is to know about Command Prompts. Go to Start - Help and Support - then type dos commands into the search window, and take your pick of the help available.
