Command prompt which is provided by Microsoft windows is always a popular tool among the advanced Windows user and administrators. It can increase your efficiency and speed of using the windows command. Like to open Windows word, you probably have to click on Start menu > Go To Programs > Go To MS Office > select Microsoft word shortcut. Alternatively If you have Command prompt already open you can simply type “Winword” Or press Windows +R and then type “Winword” in Run type box. I am sure once you try this method you will stop using the Start menu as it is much faster way of opening MS Word.

So how it happens, basically “winword.exe” is the core application file which is launched when you click o MS Word shortcut in your start menu. Same thing you can launch by typing the executable filename on command prompt. Run prompt does the same thing when we type an executable filename, it invokes command prompt and then execute the command and closes the Command prompt as well.
Now you know how and why Command prompt is faster than anything else in windows and that is why advanced users heavily use it. But if you are a Linux user, I am sure you never liked the command prompt of Windows compared to Linux Shell. Reason ? Linux shell is much more powerful then Windows Shell.
