Ha!

Just bought this particular endstop to use as part of a CR-10 filament sensor - cheers!

Would like to know how it works. I am new with the printer and do I need some command to go with it and where do I get the switch setup??

A bit late, but might still want to know - you'd need to connect this to your printer's controller board (the one inside the big black control box that's attached to it), and flash the firmware on it to understand what to do with this new sensor it's getting input from. An example would be Timothy Hoogland's Unified Firmware, found here: https://www.th3dstudio.com/knowledge-base/th3d-unified-firmware/

This isn't something to undertake if you're afraid of doing things that, technically, carry the risk of making parts of your printer unusable if you accidentally mess up. If you can follow instructions and pay attention to what's happening and read thoroughly, though, it oughtta go fine.
