    Here's something awesome; a tutorial about Windows Management Instrumentation Command-line (WMIC), which uses the power of WMI to enable systems management from the command line, including interactive shell and non-interactive modes, with practical examples like environment and process control, a reference to Sysinternals PsExec tool, more reading, and other tips. Do take a look.

    First time I ever heard of it.
    Read the article and came up lacking.
    Typed in WMIC in the command line and got
    slammed against the wall right there.
    For instance how does one get into the GUI for it?
    Guess I need a lot more study but whereo_O

    GUI? What GUI? It's called WMI command-line.
    You have the GUI already for everything, it's called Windows.
    And this is the command-line Windows.
