This is quite confusing. If you use the Calculator application, there is no option there for starting the command prompt or “cmd”. On the other hand, if you want to start the Calculator from the command prompt, that would be easy. Press the Windows key + R to bring up the Run dialog then type without quotes “calc” then hit Enter.

This will launch the Calculator application straight from the command prompt. To close the application or the calculator, just click on the “X” button on the upper right most corner. If this doesn’t work and the calculator is stuck and cannot close, you can close it from the Task Manager. Press CTR + SHIFT + ESC to bring up the Windows Task Manager then go to “Processes” tab.

On the list, look for “calc.exe” then select it and click “End Process”. Click “Yes” to confirm. Now, if the calculator application keeps on freezing every time you use it, try checking your system using the System File Checker utility. Press the Windows key + R to bring up the Run dialog then type without quotes “cmd” then hit Enter.

In the command prompt window, type without quotes “sfc /scannow” then hit Enter. When you are prompted for the setup CD, insert your Windows setup CD or DVD on the optical drive then click to continue. Wait until it is complete. When it is finished, close the command prompt and restart the computer. See if this works.
