Learn PowerShell instead (really: it is far more powerful and consistent). – Richard Sep 10 '10 at 9:10

Do you use any of these sites yourself? If so, which ones are your favourite? – Casebash Sep 10 '10 at 23:01
I use Micosoft Command-line reference A-Z in Windows XP. – subanki Sep 10 '10 at 23:12

At some point I printed the entire overview page at It's great for quickly finding the command I want to use, then I actually go to the web page if I need more info on usage.

I've found the forum there also very good, for help on more complex commands and scripting. – paradroid Sep 10 '10 at 5:53
The webpage looks like a nice reference, but it isn't as well designed as a lot of printable cheat sheets – Casebash Sep 10 '10 at 5:57
@Casebash: true... however I've found that the cheat sheets I print up rarely get used because I'm always connected to the internet. So just having the overview is enough for me, though you're right it's not pretty and not that in depth :) – Robert S Ciaccio Sep 12 '10 at 2:25

It's not a cheat sheet in the normal sense but I often type


to get a list of available commands and then

help command

to get the command's usage and arguments.

It's always available so I never lose it.

I think it would be better to get used to typing 'command /?' instead, as that also works with non-default command line programs. 'command -h' is common with linux ported programs. – paradroid Sep 10 '10 at 5:56
