Take Command 26.0

Reviewed by Pete Daniel

"A powerful GUI Windows command interpreter"

Overview

Take Command is a batch file creation environment that can use the GUI and the command line to create effective batch files to run functions in an automated fashion.

The program combines the greater possibilities of an attractive GUI with command line access within the Take Command application. The software adds over 160 new commands to what is included with the standard Windows command line access. Over 620 functions and variables can also be accessed.

The program itself is designed to be a development environment and debugger for users who are serious about creating new batch scripts to help launch setup programs or run their computers more efficiently.

The software includes so many new commands to help speed up the creation of extensive batch scripts that the user will actually have to learn the new command enhancements before they can get the most out of them.

File management access includes support for FTP and HTTP access, with both SSH and SSL fully supported for encrypted access.

Installation

The installation completed without any issues.

There was no adware, toolbars, spyware or malware included with the setup package.

Take Command requires Windows 2000, Vista, XP, 7, 8, 8.1, 10, RT or Windows Server.

Interface

The interface is modern and clean. Sparing use of oranges and other colors remove the sense that everything is white with a black background.

There are a few quick command icons at the very top of the application window and a menu system below that.

A folder list is shown down the left side of the window. A list view is displayed to the right hugging the spot just below the menu system. A multi-tabbed interface for scripts is shown below the list view pane. Tabs like TCC prompt, PowerShell, CMD, and bash can be used there.

Pros

  • Combined GUI and command line in a single, attractive interface
  • Included hundreds of commands to make writing scripts easier and faster
  • Over 500 internal variables also included
  • FTP and HTTP support with encryption options for SSH and SSL
  • Analyze Regular Expressions
  • 30 day trial period

Cons

  • Some users may prefer to stick with a plain console with commands that they've already taken the time to learn and know well

Alternatives

ConEmu is a console emulator that offers advantages over the standard Windows console that comes with the operating system.

Conclusion

Take Command is an extensive batch script creation package that merges a GUI with a command line approach complete with numerous new powerful commands included with the package.

Requirements: 90Mb free disk space

What's new in this version: Over 300 new features since v24, including improved speed, many new batch debugger improvements, more colorization options, and expanded help.
