How to Change Language on CMD

I worked remotely (using psexec tool) on a Chinese workstation. Every message on CMD  was in Traditional Chinese, but unfortunately I don’t speak Chinese.

This command switch the active code page to English:

chcp 437

Now you can type “tasklist” (show process list and PID) on prompt and see everything readable :-)
