SkyDrive Command Line Interface Brings DOS Syntax Back to Life

A new SkyDrive interface called “SkyDrive Command Line Interface” is now available. The premise behind SKyCMD is so users can navigate using old DOS commands, rather than navigate through their files with the flick of a finger or view photos with a click of a mouse.

April Fools SkyDrive Command Line Interface

“Starting today, you can finally interact with SkyDrive the way you’ve always wanted to. You can use the classic DOS syntax to easily navigate your file hierarchy–familiar commands like ‘dir’ and ‘cd.’ Simple. Powerful,” Microsoft stated in a April 1 blog post.

“Once you connect SkyCMD to your SkyDrive account you can do many of the powerful things that only a CLI can offer.”

As for customization, try the “color” command to give your SkyCMD window a little flare.

In other words, you can use classic DOS commands to navigate through your folders and files.

“One of our amazing developers, Luke, came up with the early rendition of SkyCMD and showed it around the SkyDrive hallways a couple months ago. We all loved it and knew that if it had a few more obscure commands and the right ASCII art we had a winner on our hands. The volume of internal feature requests for SkyCMD grew to the point that we’ve put the entire SkyDrive engineering organization to work building it,” microsoft said.

Yes this is yet another April Fools joke, courtesy of Microsoft.
