• Update account password:
    It is highly recommended that you update the default password for the Administrator account. To do this, you can issue the following command: net user Administrator [new password] where [new password] represents a strong password of your choice.
  • Create local user accounts:
    If you wish to give others access to your Windows IoT Core device, you can create additional local user accounts using PS by typing in net user [username] [password] /add. If you wish to add this user to other groups, such as the Administrator group, use net localgroup Administrators [username] /add.
  • Set password:
    To change the password on an account on your device, run SetPassword [account-username] [new-password] [old-password] to change the account password.
  • Query and set device name:
    To identify your current device name, simply type hostname. To change the name of your Windows IoT Core device, type SetComputerName [new machinename]. You may need to restart your device for the name change to take effect.
  • Basic network configuration:
    Many of the basic network configuration utilities you may already be familiar with are available in Windows IoT Core, including commands such as ping.exenetstat.exe, netsh.exe, ipconfig.exe, nslookup.exe, tracert.exe, and arp.exe.
  • Copy utilities:
    Microsoft is providing familiar tools, including sfpcopy.exe as well as xcopy.exe.
  • Process Management:
    To view currently running processes, you can try either get-process or alternatively tlist.exe. To stop a running process, type kill.exe [pid or process name].
  • Setting startup app:
    Use the startup editor to configure startup apps on your Windows IoT Core device. Run IotStartup with any of the following options:
    IotStartup list lists installed applications
    IotStartup list headed lists installed headed applications
    IotStartup list headless lists installed headless applications
    IotStartup list [MyApp] list installed applications that match pattern MyApp
    IotStartup add adds headed and headless applications
    IotStartup add headed [MyApp] adds headed applications that match pattern MyApp. Pattern must match only one application.
    IotStartup add headless [Task1] adds headless applications that match pattern Task1
    IotStartup remove removes headed and headless applications
    IotStartup remove headed [MyApp] removes headed applications that match pattern MyApp
    IotStartup remove headless [Task1] removes headless applications that match pattern Task1
    IotStartup startup lists headed and headless applications registered for startup
    IotStartup startup [MyApp] lists headed and headless applications registered for startup that match pattern MyApp
    IotStartup startup headed [MyApp] lists headed applications registered for startup that match MyApp
    IotStartup startup headless [Task1] lists headless applications registered for startup that match Task1

  • Set Boot Option (Headless vs. headed boot):
    Windows IoT Core devices can be set to headed (when display capabilities are required) or headless (when a display is not required or available) device mode. To change this setting, use setbootoption.exe [headed | headless].

     
  • Task scheduler:
    To view the current list of scheduled tasks, use the schtasks.exe command. You can create new tasks with the /create switch or run on-demand tasks with the/run switch. For a full list of supported parameters, use schtasks.exe /?
  • Device drivers:
    The device console utility is useful in identifying and managing installed devices and drivers. For a full list of parameters, use devcon.exe /?
  • Registry Access:
    If you need to access the registry to view or modify settings, use the reg.exe /? Command for the full list of supported parameters.
  • Services:
    Managing Windows services can be accomplished via the net.exe command. To see a list of running services, type net start. To start or stop a specific service, type net [start | stop] [service name]. Alternatively, you can also use the service control manager via sc.exe command.
  • Boot configuration:
    You can make changes to the boot configuration of your Windows IoT Core device using bcdedit.exe. For instance, you can enable testsigning with bcdedit –set testsigning on command.
  • Shutdown/restart device:
    To shut down your device, type shutdown /s /t 0. To restart the device, use the /r switch instead with the command shutdown /r /t 0.
  • List Services:
    This utility lists all the NT Services running on your Windows 10 IoT Core device. From a PowerShell session on your device, run ListServices to run the utility.
  • Set display resolution:
    To adjust the resolution of a display connected to your Windows 10 IoT Core device, run SetDisplayResolution [width] [height]. To query the resolution, exclude the [width] and [height] parameters.
