Keep the MS-DOS Prompt readily available. Right-click on the Start button and select Open. Double-click on the Programs icon, then drag the MS-DOS Prompt shortcut and drop it on the StartUp icon. Now double-click on the StartUp icon, right-click on the MS-DOS Prompt shortcut and select Properties. Select Minimized, then click once in the Shortcut Key box and type in the hotkey of your choice (say, Ctrl+D). From now on, a minimized MS-DOS Prompt will launch at start-up. Whenever you want to enter a quick command, press your shortcut key to bring up the prompt.
