List Of DOS Commands 2018

MS-DOS dominated the IBM PC cooperative market between 1981 to 1995, or until about 2000 with including the partially MS-DOS-based Microsoft Windows 95, Windows 98, and Millennium Edition. 

DOS is used to represent the family of several very similar command-line systems, including MS-DOS, PTS-DOS, FreeDOS, PC-DOS, ROM-DOS, OSx16, “Horizon OS” and DR-DOS. Some unrelated, non-x86 microcomputer disk operating systems had “DOS” in their names, and are often referred to simply as “DOS” when discussing machines that use them (e.g., AMSDOS, ANDOS, AmigaDOS, Apple DOS, Commodore DOS, CSI-DOS, Atari DOS, ProDOS, and TRSDOS). While providing many of the same operating system functions for their respective computer systems, programs running under any one of these operating systems would not run under others. Today we are here with the List Of DOS Commands 2018.
