    Review: Take Command 14 command line utility is easier to use than PowerShell

    Posted December 8, 2012 - 8:35 am

    Serious geeks spend a lot of time at the command line. But Windows' antique command line doesn't even resize properly, and it takes a mouse command to paste into (hitting Ctrl+V will just result in ^V being printed). Microsoft's answer to this is PowerShell, an alternative command processor bundled with Windows from XP SP2 to Windows 8. PowerShell can do lots of things, and its default console application is an improvement, too, because you can resize it--but you still can't select text using the keyboard, paste with Ctrl+V, or even resize its font quickly. Plus, the PowerShell command processor itself is not easy to learn, and you may have to adjust your computer's security settings to be able to use it. Take Command 14 is a $100 utility (30-day free trial) that proves the Windows command line really doesn't have to feel this ancient or be this complex.
