How to open Command Prompt from the Start menu

The most common way to open Command Prompt, as with all Windows programs, is from the Start menu. Within this menu, you’ll find Command Prompt in the Windows system sub-menu. Instead of tediously scrolling down, click one of the letters that divide the Start menu into alphabetical groups, for example “A” at the top. All letters are then displayed. Click “W” and the Start menu will automatically scroll down.
