This article will show you how to delete and create Windows Containers running on Microsoft Azure.

Before you start make sure you read the series of articles I published about Windows Containers on Microsoft Azure before continuing.

Docker create -t -i windowsservercore cmd

Than start It using:

Docker Start ID

Note: type Docker PS -A to get the container ID

To rename a container type:

Docker rename ID NEWNAME
