Hey Guys, welcome to tricky bhai. Today i will tell you about some cool CMD commands using which you can use your system with more comfort. So let’s start without wasting more time.

Requirements :

1. Windows OS.
2. Administrator rights.

Note : You must run CMD as Administrator in order to use these commands.

To Run CMD as Administrator :

1. Go to Start menu.

2. Search for Command prompt.

3. Right click on it, and click on run as Administrator.

Commands :

1. driverquery : To get a list of all the installed drivers on your system.

This command is used to see all the drivers that are installed on your system. Sometimes, devices don’t work properly, in that case, you can check if you have installed the correct driver for that device using ‘driverquery‘ command. Just run CMD as Administrator, type driverquery and hit Enter.
