Speedtest result from windows CMD!! [Step-By-Step Guides]

 Do you want to get the speed test result directly from the window's CMD terminal? Just like Linux users get from the terminal by typing speedtest-cli. Here's a sneak peak.





If you want to use this simple yet powerful CMD to run globally from anywhere in the windows follow these few simple steps:


1. Go to https://www.speedtest.net/apps/cli and download this 1MB package. Webpage should look like this

2. Once you downloaded the file, extract it and it should look like this.

3. Open your C: drive and put the extracted ookla-speedtest-1.0.0-win64 folder into C:\Programe Files (x86). It should look like this.

4.Now click on 'Settings' > 'System' then search 'Edit the system environment variables'. It should look like this.


5. Now it should already be opened to tab 'Advanced'  if not, then click 'Advanced' and then on 'environment variables'. It should look like this.

6. After that, click and select 'Path' then hit 'Edit' and it should open to a new window.

7. Now, finally click 'New' then type the path of your Okla folder you just pasted in Step 2. Once the path is added, click 'Ok' and it should look like this.




Once you have done all of this, you don't need to restart your PC. Just open CMD and run speedtest and hit enter! annnnnnd BOOM!! You'll see the results in few seconds. The animation is SICK!!
Now, you may ask, why use the CMD speed test? First of all, it's COOL AF, second, it'll give you a bit more accurate result than the browser. As it's running directly from the terminal without any add-ons or extensions to load like in browsers.

NOW, IF YOU SUCCESSFULLY DID IT, PLEASE SHARE YOUR TERMINAL'S SS. I'D LOVE TO SEE THE RESULTS! :heart
