Dos Prompt Home Page Command Prompt Reference

Displays or sets the date.

DATE [/T | date]

Type DATE without parameters to display the current date setting and a prompt for a new one. Press ENTER to keep the same date.

If Command Extensions are enabled the DATE command supports the /T switch which tells the command to just output the current date, without prompting for a new date.


For the syntax for the date, which is based on your current location settings, run DATE without any commands. Then simply press Enter to accept the current date, or enter a new one.
