EXAMPLES

cd

      – Changes current directory to the highest level of the current drive (the root directory).

cd ..

      – Goes up one directory. For example if you are within the

C:WINDOWSCOMMAND>

      directory this would take you to

C:WINDOWS>
cd windows

      – Changes to the

      subdirectory of the current directory (if it exists).

Note: If you want to change to a different drive, CD will not switch to it. CD only changes directories in the current drive. To change drives, type the drive letter followed by a colon. i.e. cd d: will not switch to the d drive, but d: will switch drives.
