Report misleading

If you run NirCmd with a command-line option, you are allowed to write and delete keys and values in the Registry, write different values into an INI file, and even contact your internet account or connect to a VPN network.


  • Other commands give you the possibility  of working with application windows
  • You are capable of saving the text contents of a clipboard to the file, or you can load  contents of a file to a clipboard, or even clear the clipboard as a whole
  •  By entering the command nircmd.exe empty bin, the program will  automatically empty on drives or partitions instead of the drop drag or constant right-clicking

NirCmd allows you to do many things on your computer without removing your hands from the keyboard or even dialing up a dialogue or a program interface. NirCmd is a command-line utility but doesn't scare away by nonmodern tech, heavily experienced users find it is still the fastest way to go about things.

It can do many functions simply from the command line

A simple Help file can make NirCmd easy for unfamiliar users to learn it, too. You can even, say, close and or minimize all the Explorer or Internet windows just with a shortcut. You are capable of removing the title bar from a window to free yourself some more space. And even set a particular window where it is always on top of all the others.

So at last in the verdict, this product is A seemingly small but versatile tool with a variety of system automation and even Windows control options. It is aimed for a more expert audience, but however, you'll come to find that even inexperienced PC users will find some time-saving capabilities here.

NirCmd is a small yet powerful utility that allows you to do many useful tasks from command-line, without displaying any user interface you can change your display settings, turn off your monitor, open the door of your CD-ROM drive, and much much more
This product allows you to create a shortcut to your desktop which comes in very handy when trying to find a specific program. NirCmd allows you to speak the text that is currently in the clipboard for easy navigation and saves some time. NirCmd allows you to create a shortcut for volume controls which is very unique and eye-catching, not many programs offer this! Nircmd will allow you to increase and decrease the volume, you are able to mute and unmute this software which is an advantage. You are able to hide things such as the tray, enable and disable screen saver, and many more features come with this amazing software. I would definitely recommend NirCmd to give it a try and see how well it works
I've been looking for a free command-line software for my Windows system. I downloaded NirCmd for Windows and it's been great. It installed it with no issues. Sometimes I just want to make changes without having to deal with interfaces. NirCmd lets me run some useful commands with a few lines. I can change the register. I've used it often to dial to my internet account. All this done from command line. Just awesome. I save so much time by not having to navigate through interfaces.
NirCmd is a small command-line utility that allows you to do a lot of really and super useful tasks without even displaying any user interface! I'm blown away. I mean, seriously! If there are a lot of random ones out there like this that honestly stink so bad that I categorize them as complete garbage. I love this one and have finally found what I need with it! Awesome!
Being in the IT field, I have used NirCmd before, and can vouch for it's extreme usefulness, and reliability. Just follow the howto, and use your calculator to get the value of what you want. I have rebooted a few times,and it works great.
Despite this product being developed with older software, it clearly can work for the modern day. It is implemented to work with Windows 10, even older versions of Windows like Windows 8 can handle this software. The fact such a great piece of software is free is probably the best feature. Normally you could pay hundreds for it.
