Microsoft Windows 8 has gotten a lot of exposure in the past month with 40 million customers upgrading to the new OS.
Geeks will be happy to know that the "Run" command and command line tools are alive and well in Windows 8.
To access the Run command, press the Windows key + R on your keyboard.
To access the command line interface, affectionately referred to as the DOS prompt, type 'cmd' in the Open field of the Run command and then click the OK button.
Once the DOS window appears, type the command 'ver' and press enter to see the version and build number associated with your installation of Windows 8.
To close the DOS windows, type the command 'exit' and press enter or simply click the red X dismiss button.
