Is there any clever way to run a bulk of cmd.exe commands in one go, i.e NET commands (all of which output is written to >txtfile.txt). Rather than having to type each manually and hit enter. I thought if you have a heap of them you could go for it in one go to save time (especially if you dont have to see the output in the command prompt box itself).

You can have all your commands in one batch file with >> (redirector switch)

example

Ipconfig /all > C:\testresults.txt
dnscmd /clearcache >> C:\testresults.txt
This will return all commad output to single notepad
don't know which net commads you are talking about please

Thanks

If you just need to concatenate 2 commands, there's a neat way to do so - just put an ampersand (&) in between.

I.e. to restart the a NTP client installed as service in Windows, just type

NET STOP NTP & NET START NTP

Works with several commands in line, limited only by the allowed length of the command line.

Refer to the help for cmd.exe for details.

(BTW: A batch file is more simple to use ...)
