Command Prompt Portable is a lightweight system enhancement utility that allows users of all knowledge levels to gain the ability to run a command-line environment that is activated directly from a removable storage drive. By not relying on the graphical interface of the Windows OS or even the “CMD” tool that is embedded into it, users of this app can be sure that they can do their work on every PC that can access their portable USB stick.

For most people, Command Prompt Portable will represent a reliable application that is used either for a simple task that can be activated with traditional DOS text commands, or even larger batch operations that are managed by BAT archives. Such a versatile approach enables users to skip managing several (or dozen) file transfer windows or activating numerous other Windows apps needed to administrate current Windows session or troubleshoot various Windows issues.

Even though the entirety of this application is focused only on delivering a standard text-based interface from the days of good old DOS, users can still manage to find few customization tools that will transform some aspects of the app – namely the color of the cursor, title of the main app window, change the columns and cursor. All settings changes are managed by the contents of the BAT file that utilizes standard DOS commands.

For advanced users, It also supports the ability for speeding up writing folder names (when pressing TAB during mid-typing) by simply adding a CommandPromptPortable.ini file to the application's folder.

Command Prompt Portable is 100% FREE and can be used on all versions of Windows (including Windows 98). The app is optimized for the running of the portable USB storage drivers, does not feature an installation app, and it makes no changes to the Windows Registry database.
