Do Not Emit A Command Prompt

How To Articles

I used to be frustrated whenever I opened up a command prompt on my computer only to be bombarded with lines of text telling me what directory I was in and what version of the operating system I was running. It felt like a waste of time and a distraction from the task at hand. But then, I discovered a simple solution that completely eliminated the command prompt from my workflow – and it has been a game changer.

The Problem with the Command Prompt

For those who are unfamiliar, the command prompt is a text-based interface that allows users to interact with their computer through a series of commands. While it can be a powerful tool for experienced users, it can also be overwhelming and distracting for those who just want to get things done quickly.

One of the biggest issues I had with the command prompt was its tendency to clutter my screen with unnecessary information. Every time I opened it, I would have to sift through lines of text just to find a place to enter my command. It felt like I was wasting valuable time and energy.

A Simple Solution: Silent Command Prompt

Fortunately, there is a simple solution to this problem – the silent command prompt. By using a few command-line parameters, you can configure the command prompt to launch without displaying any information. This allows you to focus on your work without any distractions.

To launch a silent command prompt, simply open the Run dialog box by pressing Win + R, then type “cmd” and hit Enter. This will open the command prompt, but without any unnecessary clutter on your screen.

Going Deeper: Customizing the Silent Command Prompt

But why stop at simply hiding the command prompt? With a few additional tweaks, you can customize the silent command prompt to suit your needs and preferences.

For example, you can change the color of the command prompt window to make it easier on the eyes. Simply right-click on the title bar of the command prompt window, select “Properties”, and navigate to the “Colors” tab. From there, you can choose a color scheme that works for you.

You can also change the font and font size of the command prompt window to make it more readable. Again, right-click on the title bar, select “Properties”, and navigate to the “Font” tab. Here, you can choose your desired font and size.

Additionally, you can customize the command prompt’s behavior by modifying its properties. Right-click on the title bar, select “Properties”, and navigate to the “Options” tab. Here, you can enable or disable various features such as auto-completion, command history, and quick edit mode.


The silent command prompt has completely transformed my workflow and made using the command prompt a breeze. By hiding unnecessary information and customizing its appearance and behavior, I am now able to focus on my work without any distractions. Whether you’re a seasoned command prompt user or just getting started, I highly recommend giving the silent command prompt a try.
