Q. I closed my command prompt window in Server Core. Now I have no interface. What do I do?

A. It's easy to type exit in your command prompt window in a server core session, and if you do that then you have no interface. To get it back, press Ctrl+Alt+Del, select Task manager, go to the Tasks tab, click the New Task... button, and enter the task cmd.exe.
