exit The exit command ends the current command prompt session and closes the Command Prompt window. If you need further help with a particular command, type [command_name] /? to display information about the specified command (typing help [command_name] will also display help information). Personalizing Windows 0:00-0:46 In this demonstration, we're going to spend some time looking at ways that you can personalize Windows. The first thing we're going to look at is appearance and personalization. In order to do this, we go into Control Panel. I'm going to right-click on my Windows icon, and then select Control Panel, and then we come over here to Appearance and Personalization. And then if I select Personalization, I can customize the way Windows looks. Now, an important thing to remember here, before we go any farther, is the fact that I am customizing the way Windows looks for my current user account. If I login into the system as a different user, then I can set different personalization settings and the computing environment will look differently. So remember these settings are made on a per user basis. Themes 0:47-1:44 One way to configure the way Windows looks and sounds is by using themes. A Windows theme changes the desktop background, the Windows colors, the system sounds, and the screensaver all at the same time. Now Windows comes with several themes pre-installed. As you can see here, we have a theme called Windows. We have a theme called Windows 10, and we have a theme called Flowers. We also have some accessibility themes that we can use as well. High Contrast #1 and #2, High Contrast Black, and High Contrast White. If I want to switch to a particular theme, all I have to do is click on it. Notice that as soon as I click on a theme, Windows is immediately reconfigured using the visual settings and the audio settings associated with that theme. Now there's something you need to understand that's unique to Windows 10 where themes are concerned. Notice here in this interface that I can only select the theme. I can't actually go in and customize the theme within Control Panel. Windows 8 Customization 1:45-3:31 I've switched over now to a Windows 8 System, and if we launch Control Panel from it, and go to Appearance and Personalization, and then go to personalization. We can again select a particular theme that we want to use. But notice down here that when I do, I can customize the components within the theme, such as the desktop background, the color, the sounds, and the screensaver. For example, I can come over here and click Lines and colors for my desktop theme, and then I can come down here and customize the way that theme works. I click on Desktop Background, and here I can select or deselect which images I want to include for my background.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
