I'm not aware of any password method to block use of DOS commands, but you could change the filename of the DOS editor from EDIT.COM to MYEDIT.COM. Then if anyone types EDIT they will just get a "bad command or filename" error. Only you will know that you need to type MYEDIT instead.

PS. nice to see someone still using the "old school" DOS. I started with that 15 years ago. Most PC users today wouldn't have a clue what DOS was, let alone how to use it! :whistling:

I first found out what DOS was when the VICE came out and after that I thought it was cool to make my own stuff in DOS, I think it's easy to use and what most beginners need to use if they want to get used to all that.
