Editors' Review


NirCmd lets you do a lot on your computer without taking your hands off the keyboard or calling up a dialog or program interface. It's a command-line utility, but don't be put off by the "old" tech -- expert users know it's still the fastest way to do things. A full Help file makes NirCmd easy for new users to learn, too.


Copy to Registry: During setup, NirCmd offers to copy itself to the Windows Registry, so you don't have to type "nircmd.exe" each time. You can just copy nircmd.exe to any folder in the PATH environmental variable.

Fast typing: Fast-fingered typers will love NirCmd's ability to do a lot of things you'd otherwise have to take your hands off the keyboard and move to the mouse to do.

Example commands: NirCmd's product page lists lots of example commands for doing everything from opening and closing your CD drive's door to writing and deleting Registry values.

Showerror: The optional showerror parameter will display an error message if a command fails to execute. Many other syntax options are listed, including special string sequences.


Unfamiliar: The command line is so unfamiliar to today's PC users that it can be confusing and even intimidating. NirCmd can help dispel the mystery of the command line, but it may still prove too daunting to less-experienced users.

Bottom Line

With so many potential uses, NirCmd is certainly worth a try.

"I have only used it to open cd tray."

 |  Version: NirCmd 2.75


so far it works great. It makes it easy to open the cd tray and keeps me
from reaching ove to my pc and push the little button, a good little program.


I have not used any other option so I can only say good things about it for now
so I have no Cons


A great little program and I only wish that i,d had it long ago.
