These file managers include many features and, among other, allow to work with a command line.

The handler of the Windows teams (other names - the interpreter of teams, the command interpreter, the command processor, a command line, a command cover; the disk address - / Windows/System32/cmd. exe; weight : Vista - 312 CBs; XP - 386 CBs) is used for performance of the teams entered from the keyboard.
