Displays the status of one or all of the devices installed on your system.
 
Syntax
 
    MODE [device] [/STATUS]
 
To display the status of all devices installed on your system, use the
following syntax:
 
    MODE
 
Parameter
 
device
    Specifies the name of the device for which you want to display the
    status.

    command, when used without this switch, displays the status of all
    installed devices except redirected parallel printers. You can
    abbreviate the /STATUS switch as /STA.
