in the searchbox type 'cmd'
If you're using XP you have to use the run command. Same thing, run 'cmd'

Oh Shi ... read that wrong, sorry.

When you're done doing what you need, right click on command prompt, select all, push enter (enter is copy for CMD, dunno why).

Then you can paste that into a text file.

Oopsy ><

With apologies to Mr. Clemens: It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a troll than to click 'submit' and remove all doubt.

For a Command Prompt, you can out put things using the greater-than symbol, followed by the path and file. For example:

ping > c:\ipingedgoogle.txt

That makes it go to the text file instead of going to your screen.

Keep in mind that if you're trying to ping the World of Warcraft or servers, they won't ever reply to you since we block ICMP traffic.
