Sometimes you do not want people knowing the current path you work on or from which directory you invoke commands in
Windows Command Line (or previously known as
prompt command allows you to change the command prompt temporarily.
Our Default Prompt
Our default is follow this format
For instance, I have this Windows command line screen.
Now there is nothing wrong with this. However, when you are in a particular directory you may feel I bit uncomfortable sharing an image (photo) of that screen.
For instance, your Windows user name is shown on this image.
Another case is when you changed to some other directory and “work” in there.
Hide your prompt
There is a simple trick in
DOS. By using the
prompt command, we hide our command prompt.
Even if you change to another directory, the new location will not be displayed on the screen.
