MSG.exe – Windows CMD Command

Send a pop-up message to a user.

Msg is most commonly used to send Terminal Server/Citrix shutdown messages.
The ‘Home’ editions of Windows don’t include MSG.

Special characters: dash (-) forward-slash (/) and quote marks (“) can be escaped with a backslash (undocumented)

If no message text to send is specified, MSG will prompt for it (also reads from stdin)
@filename Identifies a file containing a list of usernames, session names, or sessions to send the message to.
