comment Windows CMD make directory hierarchy 1 command
AT Ramhound, if you're going to mention some software that might do it, and the software is not free(zero cost), then it's worth saying so.

comment Windows CMD make directory hierarchy 1 command
Even Linux doesn't behave like that. mkdir test{an,bart} would make testan and testbart, and you want it to create test\an and test\bart You can install cygwin and run bash and do mkdir blah{a,b} and get blaha and blahb. Or powershell might have something.

comment Is there any OS process/ program that copies text to the clipboard?
in theory, literally any application.. In practice, it'd be very uncommon.. But uncommon things happen to some people sometimes. And something like "admin2010" might be something a programmer or dreamt up and mistakenly wrote code to put in the clipboard. programmers tend not to write code that copies to the clipboard unless it's an app that does that though.. But in theory, yes.

comment Windows 7 cmd paths are different
even if you do set path=c:\abcdefg if you do c:\windows\system32>calc<ENTER> it should open calc Try that. And is python python.exe? try echo %PATHEXT% in both cmd prompts and compare. and try getting 'file' from cygwin or gnuwin32 and doing file python.exe for more info on it

comment Passwordless ssh for non-root user in Docker
you could experiment with different values in authorized_keys in the destination system(ssh-copy-id appends public keys from the source system, to authorized_keys on the destination system). And experiment with specifying the private key with ssh -i /path/to/id_rsa

comment Ending task in task manager works, but taskkill in cmd does not. Why?
and I guess other programs close fine. Have you considered 3rd party command line apps? eg maybe nircmd.exe closeprocess theprocess.exe

I don't know, but does tasklist list it? tasklist >file.

comment Is there an IDE to view the contents of an exe
what you are dreaming of doesn't exist.. But if you ran it in a virtual machine you can check add/remove programs and you'll see the bloatware that registered itself. The bloatware that is more discrete won't show there and would be much more hassle to find.

comment How do I create a directory with a trailing space?
@mafu can you post an answer about how you did it in MinGW? Did you write a C program with a line to create a directory, and use the Ming compiler? (in which case any compiler e.g. Tiny C compiler or any other one would've done it I suppose).

comment How do I create a directory with a trailing space?
You mean to say you have never seen good questions that people have voted to close or have been closed for absurd reasons that sometimes don't even apply? It happens often, so you just have to adapt the wording of the question accordingly. . Rather than arguing it, find out the way around it to make the question idiot proof.. e.g. go to chat and ask advice on how to ask the question to avoid that happening.

comment Is there a way I could transfer all files of a given extension with SSH?
@BrunoHeblingVieira 'file type' is ok. Maybe that commenter questioned what you meant because in your title you had written "from a given type" whereas 'of' would be the right term rather than from, Also though, file extension is technically better, if that's what you are specifying, and it is possible that a file's type isn't determined by its extension. The find command(the *nix one you can use via cygwin) might be able tp be amended to specify file type rather than extension i.e. regardless of extension. That would probably suit your purposes too

-1 Read the question. He is asking how to CREATE and IN WINDOWS 7. Not how to delete it from another OS. And not even how to create it from a linux live cd. (though creating it from a linux live CD might be OK as a comment)

-1 why are you even talking about ssh when you say the machines can't communicate
