Command Prompt

Clicking on ``Start $\rightarrow$ Programs $\rightarrow$ Command Prompt'' brings up a command line window for DOS commands. You can ftp or telnet from this window if you wish to transfer files or logon to an account elsewhere. There is a text editor that can be started with the command edit that will allow you to view files. Again, take care not to open files that are being accessed by other programs.
