How to create shortcut for a command in Windows

Saturday, 2 July 2016

Sometimes when you need to write and run some commands a few times then typing the whole command is a headache, but many cases you can create a shortcut to run commands on cmd in your Windows operating system or you can create a simple bat file and run them whenever you need.
Recently I wrote about creating virtual Wi-Fi with the command prompt that requires you to execute commands for turning Wi-Fi hotspot on and off, but you can create a shortcut for cmd commands and run that command with just one click.

C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c example-code
