Developers and admins love to open apps using their keyboard, with all kinds of shortcuts. Merill Fernando made something really usefull called
cmd.ms. Continue reading to see what it is and how you can use it yourself.
What is CMD.ms
Just kidding, it is an URL shortner for 164 deeplinks to admin pages. That’s right you can open all those admin portals by learning their shortcode.
It works by typing one of these url’s in the browser and you get redirected to the right portal at it’s long not rememberable url. Either use
My favorite shortcodes
adappregEntra portal - App registrations
adentappEntra portal - Enterprise applications
azfnAzure portal - All function apps
These are my favorites, quick and easy. Check the homepage to see all available links.

I added cmd.ms to edge, so I can type
[TAB] and then the shortcode followed by an
[ENTER] to visit my desired portal, in even less keys.
