Sys Minion is a free portable program for Microsoft Windows devices that provides you with access to complex system commands that you can run from its interface.
The Windows operating system comes with a set of tools that administrators use on a regular basis. These tools are operated from the command line usually, and they come with a lot of switches on top of that.
While you can run these tools from the command line, or create your own batch files for easier access, you may also use the free Sys Minion tool for that.
Sys Minion comes as a 32-bit and 64-bit version for the Windows operating system. The application lists the available operations in a sidebar in its interface, and information on the selected command on the right.
The sidebar is divided into groups for easier recognition, e.g. component store, or device drivers.
The following commands are available in version 188.8.131.52 of Sys Minion:
The commands either open another interface when executed in Sys Minion, or run in a new window inside the Sys Minion application instead.
Sys Minion is a handy tool for system administrators who run some of these commands occasionally. The downside to using the application is that you have no control over the commands. You cannot add your own switches or remove switches from the commands, and are less flexible because of that.
Still, Sys Minion is portable so that you can run it from any location on a PC.
