    Hi All,

    Myself new member to windowscentral..
    trying to Open command prompt to access folders of a USB connected windows phone.
    Tried several commands like

    wmic logicaldisk get name to view drives,but it is not.

    GET-WMIOBJECT win32_diskdrive | Where { $_.InterfaceType -eq 'USB' }

    and wmi commands in powershell.

    Could someone suggest me the best way to accomplish,instead of using any tool.
    My task is to access the mobile do language settings on my phone using powershell commands.

    Phone configuration : lumia 1020, win 8.

    Thanks,

    I've never heard of a way to change language settings on a Windows Phone using the command line, why not just change them on the phone itself?

    Like neo158 said, I'm pretty sure there's no way to do what you're trying to do. The files where system settings are saved on the phone are locked down and you can't just go in and mess with them. Command prompt doesn't just open up access for instant hacking into stuff, even as admin and even in powershell.

    Why do you need to automate the process, is there a specific reason why it MUST be automated?

    I ask that because none of that can be done through the command line or Powershell, even as admin. You can't "automate the settings" unless you use a company account and use a policy through MDM on a Windows Server, even then I'm not sure it will let you mess with language settings that way either.

    I hate quoting Wikipedia but:

    Need to automate this process for windows phone test devices. My assumption is that we do can change the settings if we could able to access windows phone through command prompt.
    Any idea and suggestions are appreciated.

    Which you can't do even on a developer unlocked device, with an admin command prompt or PowerShell. It simply won't work as has been stated twice before.

    Like I said, the only way you can do that is with a company account and a policy distributed through MDM on a Windows Server. That is the ONLY way you can do what you are asking.
