Question about a DOS command

    At least I think it's a DOS command.
    In the command prompt window I frequently ping my brokers web sight.
    (I travel a lot and use a bunch of different ISP's)
    Is there a way to create and save a simple command to: ping ? Instead of having to type the whole thing every time.

    I type about as well as your average Neanderthal and I'm just trying to make the process faster.

    Any directions offered will need to be step by step, if I knew what I was doing I probably wouldn't have to ask.

    Right click on your desktop
    create new shortcut
    paste cmd.exe /k ping
    next, next, finish

    Now THAT'S what I'm talking about.

    Absolutely perfect, thanks for the response.

    what do you think would be an easy desktop command icon to automatically backup all files under my documents to an external hard drive and overwrite the old files that are there?

    Thanks, I'll take a look at it.
  7. Maybe a copy or xcopy command either on its own or part of a batch file.
