    Cmd prompt problems?


    Ok, so I've been trying to make a server for a game called minecraft for a while now. In the process, I accidentally screwed up my cmd prompt. I did path and its completely and utterly wrong from what it's supposed to be, you can tell in an instant. I need to know step by step how to fix this. Im really not good at technology and this is my last resort. When I try and type something in to the cmd prompt like "ipconfig" it says: 'ipconfig' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. Please Help Me!


    Thankyou! Reply ASAP! This has been going on for months!

    Did you try and start (as admin) cmd from the system32 folder ?? If that works, you can make a new desktop shortcut from there.

    I started the cmd prompt by searching run in the apps section.
