  • Okay so I have to say that this article is awesome and I have to add about windows 8,8.1, and 10 if you right click on the windows icon you can get to the command prompt(run as administrator) so much faster I tried it just to see if you could and well you can. But yeah thanks for the help.

  • Many thanks for this very helpful article, worked like a charm. Will try the right click on Windows icon if ever my laptop finishes running chkdsk.
