This was bugging me for a few days.  Took a few times to look it up, so thought I would share here just in case someone else runs into this as well.  Seems when you try open a window for the command line, anytime you try to open a new one, it simply brings you back to the first command line window you opened.  Annoying.  So here are the steps…

  • Go to Start Screen.
  • Search for cmd in Apps and hit Enter. This will open Command Prompt on the Desktop.
  • Now on the Command Prompt icon on the taskbar, right click and select “Command Prompt” from the pop up menu. By this you can open multiple instances of Command Prompt

Happy coding.

Share and Enjoy !
