    webdriver-manager status

    Clear out the server and driver files. If webdriver-manager start does not work, try to clear out the saved files.

    webdriver-manager clean

    Running / stopping server in background process (stopping is not yet supported on standalone server 3.x.x):

    webdriver-manager start --detach
    webdriver-manager shutdown

    Help commands

    Wedriver-manager has a main help option: webdriver-manager help. There are also other built in help menus for each of the commands. So for example, if you would like to look up all the flag options you can set in update, you could run webdriver-manager update help.
