embed command window in form

I'm trying to embed a command window in a form in VB.NET. I remember
back in the old days there was a button in the IDE to add the window,
and I never really learned how it worked. I just downloaded Visual
Basic 2008 Express Edition and the button no longer exists. Does
anyone know how to initialize and embed a command window into a form
or control of some sort?

Thanks.

You can run other apps, or even a cmd prompt from within a program, but I
you can't easily get a command window working inside of a form. As soon as
you typed EXPLORER, it'd open a new window outside of your app.
