Windows 8 is the latest Operating system launched by Microsoft. Microsoft has shocked the people with all new Windows 8 Metro UI. Command Prompt is an essential tool in Windows OS to tweak and change system settings. The new metro style UI is very important and you won’t notice the secret old interface anywhere, unless and until you click on the desktop. When you click on the Start Menu, it will take you back to the previous screen though it is in the same old position. There is no classic or program menu like we saw in Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP that we were using as shortcut to find application. But that is missing in Windows 8.

So, in order to use the below mentioned Search Commands, you will need to type CMD or any of these commands directly while you are in the Metro UI.
