  1. You do not have to really type .exe and .com when dealing with file extensions in DOS mode. If the extensions are something other than .exe or .com, you have to type it in full. Like if you want to use appwiz.cpl, you will have to type it completely but if you want to use format command, you can simply type “format” without the extension.
    Simple and straight with no mazes: that is, or was, the beauty of DOS. Too bad that Microsoft did not keep it alive. It could have maintained two distinct operating systems: one CLI based DOS and one GUI based Windows.
